Dean Wright joins as Assistant Academy Manager

15 November 2017

Norwich City are delighted to announce the appointment of Dean Wright as Assistant Academy Manager.

Wright joins from Huddersfield Town, where he was Football Foundation Phase Coach. Prior to that, Wright worked within the Academy set-up at Bury.

City’s Academy Manager Steve Weaver, who also took Wright to Huddersfield, said: “I recruited Dean from Bury at Huddersfield and in that time he proved to be one of the best developers I’ve worked with it.

“He’ll bring a lot to the set-up here. He put together an excellent programme that fits in with the way we want to do it at Norwich City, and he understands exactly what Stuart Webber and I are trying to do.

“It’s also really important for the Club to bring people from outside of Norfolk, and people who have been in different environments. Dean’s programme last year involved playing against Everton, Liverpool, Manchester United, Manchester City and the likes of those teams – so he’ll bring and share that sort of experience with all of the coaches at Norwich.”
