The Board of Dundee United is committed to our long term development and continuous improvement across all areas of the Club in line with the aims and targets set out when we were appointed. 

Everyone has played their part in our progress to this point; From the staff, players and coaches who helped us achieve promotion to the Premiership to those that helped us consolidate our place last season during an extraordinary season, and of course, our supporters who continue to back us. 

As we move forward, everyone involved must align with the performance and development strategy to ensure the best performance across the Club. 

We have begun the process of selecting a new Head Coach to continue the significant development achieved under the guidance of the Executive Board and critical personnel already within the Club. You can rest assured that any appointment will be made after a careful recruitment process involving several exciting candidates has been finalised and the Board agree with the appointment.

While we fully understand the desire and demands of our supporters, partners and the wider external media outlets to find out who will be the next person to lead our first team, we will take our time and complete the selection process to ensure the best for Dundee United Football Club. 

Our Club has a clear vision, and despite the complications of the pandemic, we remain on course with our strategy for future success. We also remain excited about the future.

We thank all our supporters, partners and other key stakeholders for their continued support during this process and appreciate your patience.
