Coventry City Football Club have appointed Nicky Eaden as the club’s new Senior Professional Development coach.

The 43-year old joins the Sky Blues from Rotherham and will manage the club's Under-21s group who enjoyed a fantastic end to the 2015/16 season. 

The former defender also enjoyed an impressive playing career, starring for the likes of Barnsley, Wigan Athletic and Nottingham Forest. 

Eaden moved into coaching alongside his playing career, working as a player-assistant at Kettering Town before various other coaching roles, most notably at Peterborough United, Leicester City and Rotherham. Eaden will oversee U-21s training at Ryton from this week onwards, with their season set to kickoff in August. 

City boss Tony Mowbray said: "I'm delighted to welcome Nicky to the club after a lengthy recruitment process which attracted a high calibre of applicants.

“Nicky is vastly experienced in the game and I'm sure the group will benefit from the coaching experience he has obtained in his roles at Leicester City and Rotherham. 

“There is a good tradition of developing young talent from the Academy at this club and I am sure that Nicky will be working hard to continue that culture.”
