After 11 years of being part of the club, Newcastle United Head of Sport Science Jamie Harley is officially leaving in order to “seek a new challenge”.
Harley first joined The Magpies in July 2010 as a sport scientist and in June 2017 he was promoted to Head of Sport Science.
Alan Pardew, Chris Hughton, Steve McClaren, Steve Bruce, John Carter and Rafa Benitez are the names of the six coaches Harley has worked under. He’s also had 10 seasons in the Premier League, in addition to when his team won the title in the Championship that was held in 2016/17.
Harley tweeted that he was bidding farewell to the club soon before Newcastle’s final match of the 2020/21 season, where they defeated Fulham by 2-0.
“Last day for me today at NUFC, 11 seasons complete – one Championship-winning season and 10 in the Premier League. An incredible challenge and experiences I’ll never forget. Good luck to everyone at the club. Time for a new challenge!” reads his tweet.
“The club have been excellent in supporting me over the years and I’ve had really good chats with the manager and will be leaving on good terms,” Harley, also known as Associate Professor of Practice at Durham University, said to TGG.
