Career Summary

Keith Downing got his first taste of management as Interim Head Coach at West Bromwich Albion, after Steve Clarke was relieved of his duties at the West Midlands club in December 2013.

Downing has been at The Hawthorns since he took over as Academy Under-18s coach in July 2009. He was promoted to the role of Assistant Head Coach in December 2011, under Roy Hodgson, and he has remained a key figure of the coaching staff since.

Prior to his time with West Brom, Downing took his first full-time managerial role in 2007, when he replaced John Ward as caretaker manager of Cheltenham Town. Following a series of good results, Downing was given the job on a permanent basis and enjoyed  a year in charge there.

An assistant manager’s role followed at Port Vale, before joining West Brom’s coaching staff in 2011.

As a player, Downing began his professional career at Notts County before playing over 200 league and cup matches for Wolverhampton Wanderers. His long association with Wolves continued after his retirement, when he became a youth team coach there after hanging up his boots.
