Luke Dowling becomes West Brom technical director after leaving Nottingham Forest
West Brom have appointed Luke Dowling as sporting and technical director after he left a similar post at Championship rivals Nottingham Forest.
Dowling moves to The Hawthorns after seven months at the City Ground.
The 41-year-old also previously worked as sporting director at Watford, helping the Hornets win promotion back to the Premier League in 2015.
West Brom have been without a technical director since Nick Hammond was sacked in April.
Italian Giuliano Terraneo did, however, fill the role as technical consultant for a short spell.
Dowling's move sees him reunited with head coach Darren Moore, who he previously worked with at Blackburn.
"Darren is a thinker, he lives and breathes football," Dowling said.
"I saw how he worked at Blackburn. He 's a man players want to play for and staff want to work for."
