Fulham assistant Miller is new Newcastle coach in A-League

June 18, 2015

NEWCASTLE, Australia (AP) — Fulham assistant Scott Miller will take over as head coach of the Newcastle Jets next season, returning to Australia after nearly a decade in England.

Football Federation Australia, which took over the financially-struggling Jets, said Thursday that Miller signed a two-year contract.

At 33, he’ll be the youngest coach in the A-League and take over a club that finished last in the 10-team league with only three victories in 27 matches.

Miller was the fitness coach and under-21s manager at Fulham, which his now playing in the League Championship.

Newcastle also has hired a new senior assistant coach, Melbourne Victory assistant Jean-Paul de Marigny, for two years.

Former Jets coach Phil Stubbins was fired when the FFA took over the team’s operating license from industrialist Nathan Tinkler in May.
