I agree with that to some extent.
The person who gets the job, any job for that matter isn`t always the best person for it.
Friendship and trust goes a long way when appointing it happens in all walks of life.
You see it in football when the new manager brings in his trusted team and the old coaching staff are removed.
It`s not because they are better it is because they can be trusted to implement the new managers way of working.
I`ve met Chev a few times and like you say he`s a great bloke and I`m sure he will fit in well with Smith.

That's true. But you do want someone you'll get on with. If they have a personal relationship, then that's an added bonus. Probably why most head coaches pick people they've already worked with to be in their coaching teams

Sean Long new Fev coach, that’s interesting. Either he always had his wings clipped for us or is just not a good coach as we saw no evidence if it.

Great post agree with everything you say. I m suite 95% of posters on here do not know the background to appointments. Walker is obviously trusted and has had a successful season with a team that has had constant change due to the requirements of the first team (injuries and suspensions).
Deserves his chance and god luck.

I'm less fussed about who the assistant coaches are than who runs the academy tbh. And while winning the title at that level is nice, I'd be happier to see high quality spine players emerging on a more frequent basis. Chevs replacement is the key appointment imo.

Is cuthbertson going back home when he retires? I know he did well with the ladies and seems to be fairly well thought of as a coach. Wonder if he could be assistant number two.

He seems very involved with his "Lowcal" lager business so I doubt he's going back home at this point, think he has settled in York. I also doubt he will stay at Fev in his role as attack coach as he was very much a McDermott appointment I think.
