Hammers announce new assistant coach

West Ham United appoint Mark Warburton as first-team assistant coach

West Ham United is delighted to announce the appointment of Mark Warburton as a first-team assistant coach.

The former Brentford, Rangers, Nottingham Forest and Queens Park Rangers boss has managed nearly 350 matches, winning two promotions and a succession of individual awards, and will add experience and knowhow to David Moyes’ backroom staff.

Born in London, Warburton led Brentford to the EFL Championship Play-Offs and Rangers to the Scottish Premiership title before most recently enjoying three productive seasons at Queens Park Rangers, culminating in a top-half Championship finish last term.

The 59-year-old is looking forward to getting down to work when the Hammers return for pre-season training at Rush Green this weekend.

“It’s a huge privilege to be joining West Ham United to work as part of David Moyes’ backroom staff,” said Warburton.

“West Ham have made incredible progress in recent seasons, continually making forward strides to move the Club in a positive direction.

“I am excited about coming in and adding my own experience and know-how to what is an incredibly strong coaching team here.”

Manager Moyes welcomed Warburton, who will join Billy McKinlay, Paul Nevin, Kevin Nolan and Xavi Valero on the Scot’s coaching team.

  1. A really good appointment.

  2. Impressive signing by Moyes. Warburtons a good manager in his own right and we’ve got him as an assistant coach. Probably has the potential to be a future West Ham manager.
