Rotherham United are delighted to confirm the appointment of Richie Barker as the club’s assistant manager.
Barker enjoyed two spells as a player for the Millers, both of which saw him play alongside first team manager Paul Warne at both Millmoor and more recently Don Valley Stadium.
The 41-year-old called time on his playing career following his second spell with Rotherham United and went on to turn his hand to coaching.
Youth roles at Sheffield United and Scunthorpe United were followed by his first stint in the top job at Bury on a caretaker basis, which resulted in the club being promoted to League One and him subsequently taking on the role full time.
Spells as manager of Crawley Town and Portsmouth are also listed on his CV, before he joined MK Dons as assistant to Karl Robinson.
His most recent post was as number two to the same manager at Charlton Athletic and he joins the Millers now that the Addicks’ season has reached it’s conclusion.
