Coach Hogg Set to Join Newcastle
Friday, 14th Feb 2020 18:04
TWTD understands Town U23s joint-manager Chris Hogg is leaving Playford Road to take on a similar role at Newcastle United.
The 34-year-old has been coaching with the Town academy since hanging up his boots after leaving Inverness Caledonian Thistle in 2013.
Hogg worked his way up the age groups before assisting Alan Lee with the U18s and for the last few seasons Gerard Nash with the U23s, helping them to top Professional Development League Two South last season.
The Middlesbrough-born former central defender assisted Bryan Klug during his spells as caretaker-boss in 2018 and briefly worked with the first team during Paul Hurst's time in charge.
Hogg initially joined Town as a young player when George Burley signed him from York City’s youth system in 2001 for compensation of £150,000, having won England caps at U15 and U16 levels.
Hogg, who is married to his former boss Burley’s daughter, Lisa, went on to play for the Young Lions’ U18s and U19s during his time at Town, although he never made a senior appearance for the Blues.
Ex-Town skipper and coach Tony Mowbray took him to Hibernian in 2005 and Hogg spent six years with the Edinburgh club, including a spell as captain.
