Montgomery joins Postecoglou's Spurs staff as Wells promoted

Nick Montgomery has joined Ange Postecoglou’s coaching staff at Tottenham Hotspur after being sacked as head coach of Scottish club Hibernian last month, while Matt Wells has been promoted to the club’s senior assistant coach.

Montgomery, 42, missed out on the Edinburgh club’s target of a top-six finish in the Scottish top-flight and was dismissed after winning 12 of his 37 matches in charge.

Montgomery — who made 398 first-team appearances for Sheffield United between 2000 and 2012 — previously spent two years in charge of Australian club Central Coast Mariners, whom he guided to the A-League title in 2023.

The former central midfielder has now joined Postecoglou’s first-team coaching staff at Spurs, which has undergone changes this summer following the exit of senior assistant coach Chris Davies, who was appointed Birmingham City manager earlier this month.

Wells, who has served as an assistant coach in Tottenham’s first-team squad since his 2023 appointment, has now been promoted into the position vacated by Davies.

Sergio Raimundo, who was Montgomery’s assistant coach at both Central Coast Mariners and Hibs, has also joined Postecoglou’s new-look coaching staff.

Postecoglou led Spurs to a fifth-placed Premier League finish in his first season at the club, with the club to play in the Europa League in the 2024-25 season.
