Gary Brazil

Academy Manager

Academy Staff


Gary Brazil joined Nottingham Forest in 2012 as a youth coach and became Academy Manager in 2014.

Brazil had a playing career spanning almost 20 years, featuring for clubs such as Sheffield United, Preston and Fulham before he made the move into coaching under the tutelage of Sam Allardyce at Notts County, initially as a coach and then assistant manager.
After a couple of spells in temporary charge at Meadow Lane, Brazil left Notts to become a youth coach at Doncaster before taking on the role at the Nigel Doughty Academy. 
Brazil has taken charge of the first team on an interim basis on three separate occasions and has overseen the development of many players who have gone on to become regular first-team players.
