Former Hibs’ striker Keith Wright has been appointed as the new Scottish FA JD Performance School coach for Broughton High School in Edinburgh.

He replaces Greg Miller in the role, and is a well-known figure in Scottish football after a successful playing career.

The Edinburgh born Hibs’ fan led the club to League Cup success as well as winning a Scotland cap during his spell at Easter Road.

He later succeeded Craig Levein as boss of Cowdenbeath.

After leaving Central Park, Keith enjoyed a stint as youth coach at Livingston before finding a long-term home with Midlothian council as Scottish FA Football Development Officer.

A hugely popular and instantly recognisable figure locally, Keith now has the opportunity to help shape the Scotland stars of tomorrow.

He said: “It’s a new challenge for me and one I’m really looking forward to taking on.

“I appreciate the chance I’ve been given to work with these elite young players, and I want to do my best to help them fulfil their potential.”

Malky Mackay, Scottish FA Performance Director, said: “I am delighted to welcome Keith to his new position within the Scottish FA.

“It is important that our most talented young players work with the best coaches and Keith is certainly in that bracket.

“From his experience as a player to his obvious enthusiasm and expertise as a coach, I’m confident he can help the participants achieve their potential.”
