Where is Colin Calderwood now?

Colin Calderwood ended his playing career in 2001 after unfortunately breaking his leg during a brief spell playing for Nottingham Forest.

A League Cup winner with Spurs in 1999, he won the majority of his Scotland international caps during his time there and represented the national side at the 1996 UEFA European Championships and the 1998 FIFA World Cup Finals.

Upon retiring from playing he moved into coaching and was appointed reserve team manager at former club Tottenham Hotspur before joining Northampton Town as manager.

He had a successful time with The Cobblers winning promotion in his second season in charge before moving to former side Nottingham Forest as manager in 2006.

Calderwood stayed at Forest for two years before getting the sack in 2008 after winning just four times before Christmas.

The following year he was back in football as assistant manager to Chris Hughton at Newcastle United before leaving in 2010 to take the vacant managerial role at Hibernian.

He had mixed fortunes in Scotland but was eventually sacked by the club in November 2011 with a record of 12 wins out of 49 games.

Calderwood wasn’t out of work for long and was snapped up by Birmingham City in 2011 to work as assistant manager to Chris Hughton once again.

After a short spell in the Midlands, he moved to Norwich City in 2012 when Hughton was appointed manager.

The pair were sacked in 2014 but joined forces once again in early 2015 at Championship side Brighton and Hove Albion.

Calderwood resigned in November 2016 to take the position of assistant manager to Steve Bruce at Aston Villa.

The pair enjoyed a successful first season at the club but the team only won one game in nine during August and September in their second season which ultimately led to their dismissal at the start of October 2018.

Two months later Calderwood was appointed as manager of struggling League Two side Cambridge United and successfully avoided relegation but was sacked in January 2020 with the side in 18th place.
