Paul Nevin

First Team Coach

Coaching Staff


A look at the Albion first-team coach's career.

Paul Nevin became Brighton & Hove Albion's first-team coach in June 2016, after previously holding the role of Premier League head of coaching and working alongside Chris Hughton during his time at Norwich City.

Nevin assisted Hughton and Paul Trollope during the club's famous promotion-winning campaign, as the Seagulls reached the Premier League for the first time in the club's history.

The first-team coach then played his part in Albion's 15th-placed finish in their debut season in the Premier League, while the club also reached the quarter-finals of the Emirates FA Cup.

He also spent eight years as a coach at Fulham, and replaced Nathan Jones, who left to become Luton Town manager midway through the 2015/16 season.

As a player, Nevin featured for Shrewsbury Town, Carlisle United and Yeovil Town, and also had a four-year spell playing in America.

He began his coaching career with Fulham, where he worked as an academy coach and reserve-team manager; he has managed New Zealand Knights, before returning to the UK with Norwich in 2013.

He has also worked for the Football Association as a youth coach with England's national teams, and most recently has been head of academy coaching at the Premier League, a role he began in 2014.
