First-Team Staff


Oran Kearney

Oran Kearney was re-appointed as Coleraine boss in July 2019 following a ten-month stint with Scottish side St. Mirren. During his first spell at the club, Kearney guided Coleraine to Irish Cup success in May 2018, a week after finishing league runners-up to Crusaders in a close race for the Irish Premiership title. After miraculously keeping St Mirren in the Scottish Premiership, Kearney returned to The Showgrounds and added the League Cup to his list of honours.

Assistant Manager

William Murphy

William Murphy joined the Bannsiders as Oran Kearney's assistant manager at the start of the 2015-16 season following a glittering career with Linfield and Glenavon. The no-nonsense defender won every honour in the local game and his willingness to win has been a massive factor in the Stripes' turnaround since his arrival.

First-Team Coach

Paul Owens

Paul Owens joined the club as first-team coach in 2018 after a successful spell as first-team manager at Limavady United. Owens is a former player at The Showgrounds but returned to help Oran Kearney in a backroom capacity. Will hope his training methods and different strategies will help the Bannsiders compete for honours.

First-Team Coach

Trevor McKendry

Trevor McKendry joined the club alongside Oran Kearney in 2011 as assistant manager before switching to first-team coach in 2015. Trevor is a popular member in the changing room and has previous managerial experience following a spell at Portstewart.

Goalkeeping Coach

Michael Doherty

Michael Doherty has went from experiencing first-team action to becoming a goalkeeping coach at the club. 'Doc' first joined the Bannsiders in 2011 as Oran Kearney's number one before enjoying another spell at Institute. His return saw the experienced stopper help develop the young 'keepers at The Showgrounds, as well as nurturing the likes of Chris Johns, Gareth Deane and Martin Gallagher.


Alan Millar

Alan Millar has been a mainstay at the club since 2006 and has worked under the management of Marty Quinn, Davy Platt, Rodney McAree and Oran Kearney. He is one of the longest serving members of staff at The Showgrounds.


Darrell Coyles

Darrell Coyles is one of the men responsible for the first team's kit in training and matches. He travels to every senior game home and abroad, ensuring O'Donnell and co have everything they need. 2020/21 will mark his first season in the role.
