Steve Guppy | Assistant Coach
Guppy brings a wealth of experience to the Nashville bench. As a player, the Englishman appeared in over 550 matches as a professional from 1989 to 2008, including two separate stints in the English Premier League with Leicester City (1997-2001 and 2004). Guppy recorded 161 appearances for the Foxes as a left winger. Guppy also appeared for Newcastle United, Port Vale, Celtic Leeds United, Stoke City, Wycombe Wanderers, D.C. United, Stevenage F.C. and the Rochester Rhinos.
At the conclusion of his playing career, Guppy joined Gary Smith’s coaching staff at Colorado Rapids from 2009 to 2012. In their time together, Guppy and Smith went on to win the 2010 MLS Cup in a playoff run that saw the club give up one goal or less in every match. After his time in Colorado, Guppy returned overseas and joined the coaching staff of Sunderland A.F.C. in the Premier League. In Guppy’s most recent coaching stop, he spent the last five years working on the National Team staff of the Republic of Ireland along Martin O’Neill before joining him at Nottingham Forest in 2019.
