FORMER Colchester United assistant manager, Micky Adams, has gone back to college.

Adams was the U's No. 2 during the first half of the Essex club's fateful second season in the Championship, under manager Geraint Williams.

The 47-year-old replaced former assistant Mick Harford, who had left in the summer of 2007. But Adams only stayed with the U's for half-a-year, choosing to leave at the start of 2008 to look for a new job as a No. 1.

Adams achieved that aim when he was appointed the manager of Brighton last summer, but his second stint with the Seagulls ended unhappily when he departed in February, with the south coast club facing a battle to avoid relegation. They achieved safety under current boss Russell Slade.

Now, though, Adams has taken on a new role as a coach at Ardingly College, a co-educational and boarding school in West Sussex. His official title is football development professional.
