Newcastle United set to appoint Manchester United legend's brother as new coach
Newcastle United are reportedly set to appoint Graeme Carrick as the club’s Under-18s coach ahead of the new season.
The Daily Mail have reported that he will replace Peter Ramage as part of a behind the scenes restructuring with the latter now assisting Shola Ameobi as The Magpies’ loan coordinator.
Carrick progressed through the ranks at West Ham United as a youngster but injuries prevented him from following in his older brother’s footsteps as he turned to coaching instead.
The Geordie has previous links to Newcastle too having coached at the academy back in 2005 before taking up a role with the Football Association.
At the FA, Carrick was a colleague of Dan Ashworth – who was appointed as Newcastle’s new sporting director at the start of the summer.
