Is Jewell in line for the assistant role at Stoke?

Paul Jewell is being linked to the vacant assistant manager's post at Stoke City.

It was announced recently that Pulis' current assistant, Dave Kemp, has been given the new role of overseas scout with an emphasis on seeking out new talent in the US. With his family based over in the US, it had been mooted for awhile now that he was keen to spend more time at home.

It would certainly be a coup for the Potters to get an experienced former Premier League manager to understudy Tony Pulis. Jewell took Wigan from the old Division 2 (now League 1) to the Premier League and kept them there until he resigned after six years at the club in 2007. He then resurfaced the following November in a torrid season as manager of Derby County which saw them relegated from the Premier League with the lowest ever points tally. He resigned from the job at Pride Park at the end of 2008, but not before the Rams had beaten the Potters at the Brit in the Carling Cup quarter-finals.

I like Paul Jewell; as managers go he has some humility. But whether he has enough to "understudy Tony Pulis" I think is doubtful. The Scouser would likely be able to re-site and settle in Stoke -- but I can think of no other reasons why Pulis could want Jewell there unless he wants to retire soon..

Jewell may simply feel that he wants to take a back seat from management for a while. Both his jobs at Wigan and Derby must have had more than their fair share of stress - maybe he will be content with the No2 seat for a few years at least.
