Keith Derek Millen (born 26 September 1966) is an English former footballer who played as a centre back. Millen spent most of his professional career at Brentford, where he reached the Associate Members' Cup final in 1985, and won the Football League Third Division in 1992. After leaving Brentford in 1994, he finished his playing career with Watford and Bristol City. Following retirement, Millen remained at City as a member of the coaching staff. He is currently caretaker manager at Ashton Gate following Gary Johnson's departure.

Playing career

After spells as an apprentice at Southampton and Crystal Palace, Millen turned professional at Brentford in 1983.[1] He helped Brentford reach the final of the Associate Members' Cup in 1985, where they were defeated 3–1 by Wigan Athletic at Wembley Stadium.[2] He helped the club to the Football League Third Division title in 1991–92, and earned a testimonial match against Tottenham Hotspur in 1993 following ten years as a professional.[3] He joined Watford along with defensive partner Colin Foster in March 1994, helping them escape relegation that season.[1] Although Watford were eventually relegated in 1996, Millen played a part as Watford achieved successive promotions under Graham Taylor between 1997 and 1999. He left Watford later that year to join Bristol City, where he remained until retiring in 2003.[3]

Coaching career

Following his retirement from football, Millen became under-17 manager at Bristol City.[4] When Brian Tinnion was promoted to player-manager in 2004, he appointed Millen as his assistant. Under Tinnion's management City won 22 of 61 matches,[5] and Millen was appointed as caretaker when Tinnion left the club. However, he publicly ruled himself out of the running to become the permanent manager.[6]
