Brian Welsh (born 23 February 1969) is a Scottishfootball player and coach. He played for Dundee United and Hibernian. Welsh managed Cowdenbeath for two seasons and was also Head of Youth Development at Livingston. He now lives in America and is Technical Director for Braddock Road Elite Travel Soccer of the Braddock Road Youth Club in Fairfax, Virginia.
In August 1996 Welsh left Tannadice to join Hibernian in a £200,000 deal. With the Edinburgh club, he again suffered relegation but helped win promotion back to the top division in 1999. Welsh began legal proceedings against Malcolm Morrison, who was employed as Hibernian club doctor during his time with the club, in 2008. Welsh claimed that an injection administered by Morrison had ruined his career, and an out-of-court settlement for a "substantial sum" was reached.
After his playing retirement he helped coach the Cowdenbeath squad before being appointed team manager in October 2006, succeeding Mixu Paatelainen. Welsh was sacked by Cowdenbeath in June 2008, following their relegation to the Third Division. In 2009, Welsh won a compensation claim against Cowdenbeath for his dismissal as manager in June 2008. The club stated that they had dismissed Welsh because he had incurred touchline bans due to misbehaviour during matches, but the judge ruled in his favour because the club had taken no action at the time and had dismissed him for unconnected reasons.
Welsh was appointed head of youth development by Livingston in July 2009.
