Leeds United could soon be left with no first-team coaches at the club, according to Yorkshire Evening Post journalist Phil Hay.

The tweet comes as it was revealed that Leeds United goalkeeping coach Richard Hartis has resigned from his post and will leave the Championship club at the end of the season.

Leeds United already have no one filling the roles of Academy Director and Head of Recruitment and now will have one more position to fill, following Hartis’ resignation.

In addition, there has been speculation since Steve Evans took over as Head Coach of Leeds that he wouldn’t start next season in the position.  Evans was appointed Head Coach of Leeds in October of last year on a rolling contract until the end of the season.

Many Leeds fans are of the opinion that, with the club in 15th place in the table, Evans’ contract won’t be extended by owner Massimo Cellino.

If Evans leaves the club at the end of the season, with his coaches following him out of the door, Leeds could potentially be left with no first team coaches at all.

Hiring a new team for these positions would be quite the task for Cellino, who was disqualified earlier this season after failing the Owners’ and Directors’ Test.
