He was appointed player/coach at Waterford in July 1967. He made his Blues debut in Peter Fitzgerald's testimonial in August 1967.

He then worked as a coach at Hibernian, but was sacked in 1997. He was signed by Manchester United on the recommendation of his brother Alex, and he scouted players such as Diego Forlán, Anderson, Fabio Quagliarella, Alessandro Nesta and Ruud van Nistelrooy.
