Manchester City Women's manager Nick Cushing will leave his current role at the start of February to take up the post of assistant manager at New York City FC.
Having led City's women's team since its reformation in 2014, the 35-year-old has enjoyed a silverware-laden tenure, guiding his side to six trophies in as many years with three Continental Cup successes, two FA Cup triumphs and one FA Women's Super League title.
Cushing also led the team to the UEFA Women's Champions League semi finals in consecutive seasons (2016-17 and 2017-18), and leaves the Cityzens competing on three fronts during the remainder of the 2019-20 campaign.
His links with Manchester City go back as far as 2007. Having started out as a schools coach, before joining the Academy's coaching set up, Cushing's professional journey within the City Football Group now continues across the Atlantic.
In his new role, he will link up with MLS outfit New York City where he will work alongside newly appointed head coach Ronny Deila.
His final game in charge will be the team's Barclays FA Women's Super League home clash with Arsenal on Sunday 2nd February.
Following Cushing's departure, current assistant manager Alan Mahon will take charge of first team matters in the interim period, with former England men's Under-21s coach Brian Eastick providing a supporting role, bringing with him over 30 years of experience both on and off the pitch.
