The Red Bulls and Red Bulls Academy director David Longwell have parted ways, the club announced Thursday.

A native of Renfrew, Scotland, Long well had served as the academy director for Orlando City SC. He spent 15 years at St. Mirren Football Club in Scotland, where he began as a community coach and worked his way up to head of youth development.

Longwell oversaw all aspects of player development and served as manager of the St. Mirren reserve squad.

“We thank David for his contributions, but we have decided to part ways,” Red Bulls sporting director Denis Hamlett said. “I will continue to oversee our academy operations and we will have an announcement on a new academy director shortly. Developing players in the tri-state area and providing opportunities to Homegrown players continues to remain a top priority for our club.”
