Fitness Coach - Paul Warne
Someone who is no stranger to Rotherham United supporters, Paul Warne hung up his boots at the end of the 2011/12 season in order to further his career as a coach. ‘Warney’ has had some experience of being in the dugout for the Millers in the past, filling the role of joint Caretaker-Manager alongside Andy Liddell following Ronnie Moore’s departure in 2010.
Following the arrival of Andy Scott, Warne played a key role in working with the younger players, reserve team as well as assisting with the fitness side of the club. He reverted to a full-time fitness coach under Steve Evans, a role he continues to perform under Neil Refearn.
In his two spells as a player with the Millers, Warne accumulated over nine years, including back to back promotions to the Championship in his first spell, before playing a part in the campaign that resulted in a play off final in 2010, where he was an unused sub.
Between his spells in South Yorkshire, Warne played for Oldham Athletic and Yeovil, picking up the 2007/08 Supporters’ Player of the Year with the former.
He was granted a testimonial in 2013 after more than 10 years service to the club in two-spells, and was a key member of Steve Evans' backroom team that achieved back-to-back promotions to The Championship.
Warne has sinced served the club under the management of Neil Redfearn, Neil Warnock, Alan Stubbs and Kenny Jackett.
Goalkeeper Coach - Andy Dibble
Andy's two years as goalkeeping coach at Peterborough United saw two promotions, a major factor in Ronnie Moore's decision to bring him to Rotherham United back in 2009.
The well travelled goalkeeper had a storied career that saw him gain three caps for Wales and spend a considerable amount of time in the Premier League. After spells early on in his career with Luton Town, where he saved a penalty to help the Hatters defeat Arsenal to lift the League Cup, and Cardiff City, Andy moved to Manchester City in 1988, where he spent nine years.
After a number of loan spells away from the club, he rejoined Luton, followed by moves to Rangers and Sheffield United.
After his departure from Kenilworth Road, Andy signed short term deals with Middlesbrough, Altrincham, Barry Town and Hartlepool before signing for Stockport County in 2000. He moved to Wrexham in 2002 where he had a prolonged spell in the first team before finishing his career with Accrington Stanley.
Andy has had coaching experience at Accrington and Coventry City before leaving to join Peterborough United.
Head of Medical - Mike Preston
Mike re-joined the club as Head of Medical following the retirement of Denis Circuit from his full-time position at the club.
Mike worked for the Millers as youth team physio under previous manager Andy Scott, and has since worked on the medical staff with Aldershot Town and Leyton Orient.
He returned north during the close season of 2015. He has served under the management of Steve Evans, Neil Redfearn, Neil Warnock, Alan Stubbs and Kenny Jackett.
Assistant Head of Medical - Denis Circuit
After retiring as full-time Head of Medical, Denis has now reverted to the role of assistant to Mike Preston.
Denis, whose second spell with the Millers started in 1999, chalked up well over 700 games before retiring his magic sponge on a full-time basis following the League One Play-off final victory over Leyton Orient at Wembley.
In between his two spells with the Millers, he worked as physio with Sheffield United under both Dave Bassett and Howard Kendall.
He first joined the Millers in the early 80s and has worked under several managers including Norman Hunter, Ronnie Moore (twice), Alan Knill, Mark Robins, Andy Scott, Steve Evans, Neil Redfearn, Neil Warnock, Alan Stubbs and Kenny Jackett.
