Having already taken his coaching badges whilst still an active player, upon retiring Wade Elliott stayed on at Bristol City as the new manager of their under 21’s side.
In June 2016, after a coaching restructure at the club, City made the surprising decision to relieve Elliott of his duties.
He then made a surprise return to football when he featured for non league Forest Green Rovers in a pre-season friendly in July 2016 with a view to earning a new playing contract.
Although Elliott featured heavily during Forest Green’s pre-season he felt his immediate future lay in coaching and in October 2016 he was revealed as the club’s academy’s new assistant manager.
In April 2017, Wade left his post at Forest Green to join Premier League side Stoke City as assistant manager of their under 23’s team.
He was then promoted to manager of the under 23’s side in January 2018 when Glyn Hodges left the club after the sacking of first team manager Mark Hughes.
