Written by Simon Austin — June 6, 2019
DEVELOPMENT COACH Rhys Carr is leaving Bristol City by mutual consent after almost six years.
The Welshman joined the club from Cardiff in November 2013. He has been Head of Fitness and Conditioning for most of his time at Ashton Gate, before becoming Development Coach at the start of last season.
In June 2018, Andrew Rolls was appointed Head of Performance by the club, having previously been first team physio at Arsenal for five years.
Carr is highly qualified as both a coach and performance practitioner, holding the Uefa A Licence, Uefa Elite Youth A Licence and a Masters in Coaching Science. He is also currently studying for a PhD at the University of South Wales.
In addition, he is the owner of Soccer Science Ltd and will be putting on the company’s second annual performance conference at Hotel Football in Manchester on Friday June 21st.
Goalkeeping coach David Coles, who had been with City for five and a half years, has also departed by mutual consent and the club released a two-line statement saying it would "like to thank both of them for their service and wish them well in the future."
