Former Fulham assistant Miller takes Newcastle United Jets job

Football Federation Australia (FFA) has announced the appointment of Scott Miller as the new Head Coach of the Newcastle United Jets.

The 33-year old has left his role as assistant head coach at English Championship club Fulham to take up the role as the Jets' new boss on a two-year deal.

Following Miller to Hunter Stadium is Jean-Paul de Marigny who was assistant to Kevin Muscat at A-League champions Melbourne Victory last season.

A-League chief Damien de Bohun said: "Scott is an incredibly driven young Australian coach, who set off for England on a one-way ticket almost a decade ago and spent seven years in the English Premier League working with world-class players and managers.

"He has shown the FFA Technical Staff that he has the right qualities, philosophies, qualifications and experience to take the step up to a Head Coach role and I'm delighted he's been secured for Newcastle Jets.

"Jean-Paul brings vast knowledge of Australian football and the Hyundai A-League, and like Scott has excellent qualifications and experience. Together, they make a compelling combination for the Jets."

The Jets have been run by FFA since May 21 after they terminated the clubs license due to unpaid debts and pay issues which occurred during Nathan Tinkler's reign as owner.
