Barry Smith is back at Dundee, Courier Sport can reveal.
The club legend has returned to Dens Park to work in the academy.
Smith, who was a fans’ favourite as a player and then managed the Dark Blues in their historic Deefiant season, has been brought in by Gordon Strachan and Stephen Wright to add his vast experience to the youth coaching set-up.
He started the season as Brechin City boss and was Jim Weir’s number two at Forfar for a short spell before the change of management at Station Park.
Smith was sacked as Dundee manager in 2013.
