📝 Kevin Nicholson joins Exeter City as head of coaching

Former Torquay boss takes on role vacated by now assistant manager Wayne Carlisle

12 August 2019

Exeter City have appointed Kevin Nicholson as the club’s new head of coaching.

The role became available following Wayne Carlisle’s promotion to assistant manager this summer and will see Kevin work with all age groups to ensure that there is a consistency in coaching methods from the under-9s right the way through to the first team.

He will do this by working with the coaches at the club and helping develop them and make sure they are all working from the same page.

Speaking about joining Exeter City, Kevin said: “I am really, really pleased. To come to an Academy environment that is so stable, that is so well run, that is so forward-thinking, is refreshing in football because a lot of football is stuck in its way.

“Exeter Academy wants to do things differently. They want to be unique but not just for the sake of it. It is thought through, it is planned and it is organised. They reflect on everything they do and make sure there always in a position to do it better. That suits the way I work, that suits my character and I am delighted to be here.”

Speaking about Kevin’s appointment, chairman Julian Tagg said: “We are thrilled to welcome Kevin to Exeter. He has big boots to fill in terms of Wayne Carlisle, who did an excellent job working in developing the coaching methods at Exeter City. However, Kevin is a fantastic hard-working coach, with an excellent record of developing both coaches and players. We are confident he will be able to pass on his knowledge and expertise to the coaches at Exeter City and continue the excellent work the Academy does in developing talented players and well-rounded young men.”
