Joe Cole quits Chelsea coaching role

first_imgJoe Cole has quit his role at Chelsea to spend a year building up his coaching knowledge ahead of a move into management. Cole, 38, linked up with his former club a year ago to start work as a technical coach at the club’s highly-rated academy. But he decided to leave the comfortable surrounds of Stamford Bridge in order to visit clubs around the world to gain an insight in the coaching techniques of other managers in order to build up his own knowledge. The former England star ultimately hopes to move into management once he has completed his badges and learnt his trade – including by helping the FA working the country’s best young talents. Cole said: “Just before lockdown I stepped down from my role at Chelsea. I had a great time there and learned so much “It was really important in my development but I was planning on carrying my work with BT and I was planning on doing study visits around the world with different managers, and study visits within the FA.Advertisement “That all got put to bed because of Covid but I’ll pick that up when I can and it’s back to normal. I loved it there. “I’m sure one day I’ll return in some capacity but at the moment, for my development as a coach, I felt going round and going to look and listen and keep my ears and eyes open was the best thing for me.” read also:Joe Cole considering West Ham invitation He added: “I don’t want to say any clubs because I don’t know if certain managers will be in charge when I ask to go back again. I don’t want to really talk about that. “But I was working with the FA and I was looking to get with the younger age groups within the FA and see how that works. “But I don’t want to mention them because you know how things change in football.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 center_img Loading…last_img read more

Clear Lake council to consider letter of intent with Clear Lake schools for rec center project

first_imgCLEAR LAKE — The Clear Lake City Council tonight will consider approving a letter of intent with the Clear Lake Community School District on the proposed wellness and recreation center project that would be constructed just south of the current high school gymnasium. City Administrator Scott Flory says the letter of intent would show the community that both entities agree to work in good faith toward a formal partnership and/or sharing agreement related to the center that would mutually benefit the citizens of Clear Lake. If voters approve a $17 million bond issue on March 3rd, the city and school district would work together to execute a 28E sharing agreement where the school would own the center and lease it to the city for at least a 25-year period. The city would be responsible for the day-to-day operation of the center with the school having priority usage for practice times, educational courses or programs, and special events. The school district would lead the design and construction phase and be the lead financing entity for the project. The city would authorize the issuance of a general obligation bond not to exceed $700,000 as well as a general fund contribution not to exceed $300,000 toward the project.  The approximate cost of the rec center is just over $10 million. The rest of the funds from the $17 million bond issue would be earmarked for other projects at each school building as well as at Lions Field. The council meets tonight at 6 o’clock at City Hall.last_img read more
