At the time, Coppell said he was retiring from managing but hoped to find
another role within football.
Crawley chief executive Alan Williams said: “Bringing someone with
Steve’s stature in football as well as his experience and detailed knowledge
of the game to Crawley Town is another important milestone in the
development of the club.
“Steve’s background and pedigree will help us to achieve our aims of
pushing into League One and beyond and I am sure his appointment will be
welcomed by everyone with Crawley Town FC at heart.”
