City's New U18's Coach On Why He Took The Job

Darren Murray has said that Steven Pressley's philosophy was one one of the reasons that he joined Coventry City as an U18's coach.

Speaking to Barry Anderson of the Edinburgh News, Murray said: “The manager is doing a fantastic job. I watched Coventry against Sheffield United the other week and his tactics were spot on. His philosophy was clear and he’s very meticulous. Steven loves getting small details into the game and that’s something I’ve worked on for years with players. Get the small things right and big things happen. This is a new chapter in my life and my family’s life. I’ll be without them until they move down next summer so that will be a new experience for me. I’m really excited about the challenge ahead. At Hearts, the challenge wasn’t there for me any more. I know I could do the job at Hearts. I’d done all the jobs apart from the first team. I’ve coached the under-19s, under-20s and reserves and there was nothing really left for me to do there. There was no other option when Steven approached me.

“I went down and spoke with Steven, with Steve Waggott, Neil MacFarlane and all the staff. They were so welcoming. I’ve looked at their philosophy and, having known Steven Pressley’s philosophy for a long time, it’s very similar to mine. That’s one of the big attractions.”
