During his playing career, former Ipswich Town apprentice Devine had a couple of spells at Derry City in addition to playing for Glentoran, Omagh Town and Institute.
After working as Derry City's youth development officer, Devine was appointed as club first team coach by then manager Gavin Dykes in 2003.
The club's following manager Stephen Kenny opted to retain Devine in that role and he became part of the Dubliner's backroom staff at Scottish club Dunfermline in December 2006 after the duo left the Brandywell.
Kenny's return to Derry City saw Devine again becoming his number two and the Maiden City man took over as manager in January of last year after the Dubliner was appointed Shamrock Rovers boss.
