Dundee United promoted Tam Courts from head of tactical performance to head coach last June; talks with Croatian club Rijeka are due to begin this week; United finished fourth in Courts’ first season in Scottish Premiership; the 40-year-old was previously manager of Kelty Hearts
Dundee United boss Tam Courts has been given permission to speak to Rijeka, following an approach from the Croatian club.
Courts, who was appointed head coach last June, led the Tannadice club to fourth place in the Scottish Premiership this season, sealing a spot in the Europa Conference League.
The 40-year-old, who was previously the club’s head of tactical performance, joined United in February 2020 following five seasons in charge at Kelty Hearts.
Talks are expected to take place this week with Rijeka, who finished fourth in their domestic league and were runners-up in the Croatian Cup final.
United’s players are due to return to pre-season training on June 23, with their first Premiership match of the season just over seven weeks away.
Speaking during the season, former Dundee United defender Mark Reynolds told Sky Sports News:
“I don’t think Tam Courts gets enough credit for just how good a manager he is.
