Coaching career[edit]

Brentford[edit]

Quin began working in the youth setup at Brentford in the early 1990s and was later named as Head Of Youth Development in 1996.[1] In October 2004, Quin's role was extended and he was appointed youth team manager, assisted by Richard Dobson and Scott Fitzgerald.[2] Fitzgerald replaced Quin as youth team manager in May 2005,[3] with Quin continuing in his role as Head Of Youth Development.[4] Throughout his tenure, Quin ran Brentford's Centre Of Excellence on a limited budget.[1] After 20 years with the Bees, Quin left Griffin Park in July 2010 and was replaced by Ose Aibangee.[5][6]

Caretaker manager[edit]

With Brentford already relegated to League Two, Quin served as caretaker manager for the final three games of the 2006–07 season.[7] Quin's first match was against Doncaster Rovers on 21 April 2007, which resulted in a 3–0 defeat.[8] The Bees picked up a surprise win in the following game, beating Port Vale 4–3 at Griffin Park.[8] Quin's final match in charge was a 3–1 defeat to Tranmere Rovers and he was unable to keep Brentford from finishing bottom of League One.[8] Quin picked squads with a heavy emphasis on youth, giving professional debuts to Lewis Dark and Ross Montague and including other youth products Karleigh Osborne, Darius Charles, Charlie Ide, Karle Carder-Andrews, Ryan Peters, Clark Masters, Seb Brown and Bradley Falco.[9][10][11] After the season, Terry Butcher took over as first team manager.[12]

Watford[edit]

Quin coached at the Harefield Academy as part of Watford's coaching scheme during the 2010–11 season, before being named U12-U16 academy manager in June 2011. Quin took charge of Watford's Mayo International Cup side in 2012.[13] Quin managed Watford's U15 sides in 2012 and 2013 editions of the Milk Cup,[14] seeing the team to a third-place finish in 2013.[15] Quin was named Head of Academy – Coaching and Development in 2013.[15] He managed the club's reserve team between August and December 2014.[16]
