Where is Darren Moore now?
After a long career spanning 20 years, West Bromwich Albion legend Darren Moore retired from playing professional football in 2012 after two years spent playing for Burton Albion.
Affectionately known by WBA fans as ‘Big Dave’, Moore was a member of the side that earned promotion to the Premier League in 2001/02 and again in 2002/03.
He was also a Jamaica international player and represented the ‘Reggae Boyz’on three occasions in the 1999-2000 season.
Upon retiring from playing, he returned to former club West Bromwich Albion as coach of their under 18’s side before joining up with Michael Appleton at Blackburn Rovers as his first team coach in 2013.
In 2014 he rejoined West Bromwich Albion as Professional Development Phase Coach with a focus on the under 21 players that go out on loan.
He also coached the Baggies under-18’s and under-21’s sides on a daily basis.
A devout Christian, he has raised thousands for his charity Faith In Football as well as Christian Aid and Oxfam.
His ventures with co-founder and fellow ex professional Linvoy Primus have included walking The Great Wall of China and charity bike rides.
In April 2018, Moore took over first-team affairs at West Bromwich Albion following the sacking of manager Alan Pardew and despite turning the team’s fortunes around with 11 points in six games he was unable to save the Baggies from relegation.
However, the board were very pleased with his leadership skills and the way his side played and subsequently appointed him as their permanent manager in May 2018.
Going into the following season as one of the favourites to get promotion, Moore’s side had a strong half to their campaign but after winning just four of their league games after Christmas he was sacked in March 2019.
Having forged a good reputation at The Baggies it was only a matter of time before another team came calling and he was appointed in his current role as manager of League One side Doncaster Rovers in July 2019.
Moore is also chair of the Premier League’s black, asian and minority ethnic advisory group.
