NEWCASTLE United have confirmed the departure of coaching duo Steve Agnew and Stephen Clemence.

The decision comes after the appointment of head coach Eddie Howe who has brought his own coaching team with him to the club.

Jason Tindall will be Howe’s assistant head coach with Simon Weatherstone and Stephen Purches also joining the coaching staff. Dan Hodges has linked up with Howe from his former side Bournemouth to become Head of Sport Science. However, Graeme Jones will remain at the club as a first team coach.

Agnew and Clemence have been long time deputies to Steve Bruce at Newcastle along with previous clubs such as Hull City. They joined Newcastle in July 2019 alongside Bruce when he was appointed.
