O'Connor Leaves Bristol City

Mark O’Connor has left Ashton Gate to take up a first-team coach role at West Brom.

The Under-21 coach will link up once more with Tony Pulis, who he had previously worked with a Stoke City before moving to Ashton Gate.

Manager Steve Cotterill said: “I’m really pleased for Mark; he’s done a great job for me.

“I’ve known him for years right back to when I played alongside him. This is a fantastic opportunity for him and his family.

“We wish him all the best for the future.”

Gary Probert has been appointed the club’s interim Under-21 coach.

Probert joined the club in March 2013 as the Academy’s head of foundation phase, following a six-year spell at the Gloucestershire FA.
