Hegarty departs Tannadice

Dundee United have confirmed the departure of Paul Hegarty from

the club’s coaching staff.

Darren Jackson also joined the coaching staff.

A club statement read: “With the installation of the new

management team now complete, Dundee United confirm that an

amicable agreement has been reached with former assistant manager

Paul Hegarty.

“Paul, who also served Dundee United as player, club captain,

coach and manager, leaves with the best wishes and grateful thanks

for his many years of exemplary service on behalf of the club and

will always be welcome at Tannadice Park.”
