QPR have named former Manchester City and Watford goalkeeper Tony Coton as their new assistant manager. The 48-year-old will work alongside Mick Harford, who took over at Loftus Road following Paul Hart's decision to quit last week. "Mick and I are very good friends," said Coton, who was goalkeeping coach at Manchester United for 11 years. "We have kept in touch over the years - we normally speak two or three times a week - and we have the same philosophies on how the game should be played. "He called me and said he needed a hand and wanted someone he can trust who he gets on well with. "This was a big decision for me because I live up in Bolton with my family. But we go back a long way and I am delighted to be here to help."
