Craig Short left his role at Derby County in June 2013 to take on the post of first team coach at Blackburn Rovers.

After two and half years in the role, Short left Blackburn Rovers when manager Gary Bowyer was sacked after a poor start to the 2015-16 season with only three wins.

In February 2016 Short returned to former club Derby County as a coach of their under 21’s squad.

He returned to his role within the academy when new manager Nigel Peason was brought in as manager at the start of the 2016/17 season.
