Potter arrived on a four-year deal yesterday along with the backroom team who worked for him at previous club Swansea.
He has taken the title of head coach rather than first-team manager and will have support from newly-arrived technical director Dan Ashworth as he builds his squad for the Premier League.
Graham Potter will have the final say on any Albion signings
Ashworth said: “The role of the technical director is to support the head coach, through player recruitment, through making sure the staff and training ground are functioning properly to allow Graham to focus on his job, which is getting the team ready for the game on the Saturday.
It has been claimed this week that Swansea City would want to speak to Queens Park Rangers assistant manager John Eustace should they now expectedly lose Graham Potter to Brighton and Hove Albion.
New manager Mark Warburton is only just through the door and having taken caretaker charge following the sacking of Steve McClaren and helped us limp over the Championship survival line, Eustace has reverted back to his assistant role now but Monday’s Mirror (via West London Sport) have claimed that Eustace is potentially on their shortlist of possible replacements.
Eustace does have previous experience as he came into Loftus Road having been Kidderminster Harriers gaffer, as well as his short spell in the role with us, and with Swansea taking a presumed risk on Potter in the first place as he moved from Sweden, its maybe not that left field a suggestion really.
