Written by Simon Austin — June 2, 2018
WEST BROM Director of Performance Mark Gillett has resigned to take up a new role at Nottingham Forest.
Gillett arrived at the club from British Basketball in January 2010. He was initially Head of Sport Science and Medicine, before being promoted to Head of Performance in October 2013.
“It wasn’t an easy decision to leave, but after eight years I needed a new challenge and wanted to tackle something with renewed energy,” Gillett, who was previously first-team doctor at Chelsea, told the Express and Star newspaper. “It was a tough season for everybody.”
