Tribe leaves Brighton after 11 years to become Newcastle Coach-Analyst
Written by Simon Austin —
JORDAN TRIBE has left Brighton after 11 years to become Coach-Analyst at Newcastle United.
He succeeds Mark Leyland, who left in July after 18 months to become Head of Coaching Methodology at City Football Group. The new role, which recognised the merging of coaching and analysis and saw Leyland heavily involved on the training ground and on match day, had been deemed a big success by manager Eddie Howe.
Speaking about Leyland in April 2022, the Magpies boss said: “He has had a big impact He's played a huge part in what we've done this season. He's one of a number of people behind the scenes that have put a tireless amount of work in to try and improve the team.
"We love him to bits and he's been an integral part of our team.”
Leyland will be our next guest on the TGG Podcast, with the episode out next week.
Newcastle advertised the Coach-Analyst role on TGG towards the end of last season and stated, “We have a fantastic opportunity for an experienced and innovative Coach-Analyst to work closely with our First Team coaching staff to drive and deliver best-in-class 'on pitch' performance.
“Joining one of the most exciting projects in elite global sport, you will work closely with the Head Coach, Eddie Howe, and Sporting Director, Dan Ashworth, to produce and present insightful, compelling and inspirational coaching analysis to the first team squad as directed by the Head Coach.”
Tribe had been with Brighton since August 2012, originally joining as an intern and then becoming Academy Performance Analyst and Academy Performance Analysis Manager. In October 2015, he joined the first-team set-up as a Performance Analyst and in November 2018 he was promoted to Senior Performance Analyst.
Newcastle Sporting Director Dan Ashworth knows Tribe well from his time with the Seagulls from 2018 to 2022.
