Upon retiring from playing, Gavin McCann stayed on at Bolton Wanderers to gain some coaching experience eventually moving on to Hyde United in the role of assistant manager.

McCann left Hyde United in November 2013 after the team failed to register a win in their first 17 games of the season.

Gavin McCann also supports former Premier League player Lee Hendrie’s football coaching school FootieBugs.

Early 2015 saw McCann summoned to answer allegations of perjury at Newcastle Magistrates Court for matters relating to a legal case by his former agent who claimed that he was cut out of the deal which took McCann from Bolton to Aston Villa.

All parties involved in the case were cleared of the charges after the prosecution offered no evidence.

In September 2015 McCann was appointed Head of Academy Coaching at Blackpool but left the club a year later to return to former side Bolton Wanderers to develop their youngsters within their academy.
