Coventry City manager and ex-Ipswich Town defender Tony Mowbray has added former Blues stalwarts Mark Venus and Jamie Clapham to his backroom staff at the Ricoh Arena.
Venus, 48, has worked under Mowbray at all four previous clubs he has managed, Hibernian, Celtic, West Bromwich Albion and Middlesbrough.
Clapham, 39, was also part of Mowbray’s backroom team at Boro.
Venus will be in charge of recruitment at the League One club, while Clapham will assist the first team and under-21s squads.
“Mark is someone I’ve worked with for many years and have enjoyed a lot of success with,” said Mowbray, who signed a two-year deal earlier this month.
“Jamie impressed me with his coaching skills and development during my time at Middlesbrough.
