Moss makes surprise exit from Huddersfield Town
Written by Simon Austin — October 23, 2017
DAVID MOSS has left his role as Head of Football Operations at Huddersfield Town after little more than four months in the job.
The 48-year-old joined in June, having previously been Head of Recruitment at Celtic. He oversaw Hudderfield’s recruitment drive in the summer, ahead of their first season in the Premier League, and was widely regarded to have done a good job.
The Terriers spent £39.4m, recouping £6.9m, and the new recruits have helped the club to 11th in the table and a famous victory over Manchester United at the weekend.
The club said “the search for a new Head of Football Operations will now begin" and that “everyone at Huddersfield Town would like to wish David all the best in his future endeavours.”
A club insider told TGG: “There’s been no falling out and there’s nothing sinister going on here. It’s just sometimes the case that you find out a job isn’t for someone once they're in place, and both parties decided it best to go their separate ways here.”
Huddersfield Town have been big advocates of the Football Operations (essentially the Director of Football) role under the ownership of Dean Hoyle. Ross Wilson was the first incumbent, before leaving for Southampton, and was replaced by Stuart Webber, who is now at Norwich.
