Management

Manager: Gary Rowett
 

Gary Rowett arrived at The Den as Millwall’s new manager in October 2019, following the departure of Neil Harris.

The 45-year-old carries years of managerial pedigree at Championship level, taking the reins in the past with Stoke City, Derby County and Birmingham City.

Beginning his coaching career with Burton Albion in 2012 following an initial caretaker spell in charge, Gary guided The Brewers to successive Play-Off campaigns before being rewarded with an opportunity in the Championship with Birmingham in October 2014. A remarkable turnaround in form was masterminded in the West Midlands by Gary, who steered the club to seventh and a potential Play-Off push in the 2016/17 season before his next appointment at Derby County.

Gary would mount a Play-Off campaign at Pride Park in 2017/18, boasting a win rate of over 43% as the team secured a position in the top six, before moving on to Stoke the following summer. Gary’s eight-month reign at Stoke brought his total Championship management experience to over four years.

As a player, Gary made well over 400 professional appearances including spells in the Premier League with Derby, Leicester City, Everton and Charlton Athletic. The former defender also represented Birmingham and Burton as a player, as well as Cambridge United and Blackpool.

 
Assistant Manager: Callum Davidson
 
 

Callum Davidson arrived at Millwall in October 2019, as assistant to new manager Gary Rowett.

Callum previously worked with the Lions boss at Stoke City, after being teammates at Leicester City during their playing days in the early 2000s.

The 43-year-old Scotsman began his coaching career in 2013 with St. Johnstone, for whom he was still a player until hanging up his boots the following year. The club won the Scottish Cup in Callum’s first season in the dugout, and he temporarily took on manager duties when required.

After continuing in the coaching staff at McDiarmid Park until 2018, as well as linking up with the Scottish national team’s staff in 2017, Callum became a first-team coach at Stoke and joined up with the manager.

Following the duo’s departure from the bet365 Stadium in January 2019, they now unite for a third time, having played together in the East Midlands – Callum also represented St. Johnstone, Blackburn and Preston during his playing career as a left-back, and earned 19 senior Scotland caps.

 
 
 
First Team Coach: Adam Barrett

Adam Barrett joined Millwall in March 2017 as a First Team Development Coach to assist Neil Harris and David Livermore.

The former centre-half, who amassed 735 appearances for a number of clubs, including Plymouth Argyle, Bristol Rovers, Bournemouth, Gillingham and, most recently, Southend United, retired from his playing career with The Shrimpers in the January.

As such, the experienced ex-defender brings a wealth of experience to The Den.

Barrett took over as caretaker manager at the club in October 2019, following the departure of Neil Harris, and now continues in his original role to support new manager Gary Rowett.

 

Technical Coach: Joe Carnall

 

Joe Carnall also joined The Lions in October 2019, alongside manager Gary Rowett and assistant boss Callum Davidson.

Having arrived at The Den, Joe now joins Gary at their fourth club together, having worked together at Stoke City, Derby County and Birmingham City.

Joe has an extensive background in coaching and analysis, and also spent time with Nottingham Forest and Sheffield United.

Lee Turner joined The Lions in the summer of 2018 and became the club's Goalkeeping Coach.

The 48-year-old spent the entirety of his playing career in non-League, but has coached at Southend United, Crystal Palace, Bolton Wanderers and Charlton Athletic, overseeing the development of stoppers such as Nick Pope and Ben Amos.
