Kevin Nugent (born 10 April 1969 in Edmonton, London, England) was a professional footballer.

Nugent is the current youth team coach of Leyton Orient. Previously he had been assistant manager to Kenny Jackett at Swansea City. When Jackett was sacked on February 15, 2007, Nugent became caretaker manager for 3 matches earning just 1 point from a possible 9. With Martinez taking over, and wanting to bring his own men in, Nugent's future was unclear until Martinez offered him the position of chief scout. In June 2007 he returned to his roots and became the Leyton Orient Youth Team manager.

Playing career

Nugent began his career at Leyton Orient in the 1980s and made over 100 appearances in all competitions for the club. He signed for Plymouth Argyle in March 1992 for a transfer fee of £200,000 and made over 100 appearances for Plymouth. In September 1995, he moved to Bristol City for a fee of £75,000, although first-team opportunities were more limited.

Nugent signed for Cardiff City in June 1997 for a transfer fee of £65,000. He again made over 100 appearances in all competitions and won player of the yesr during there before leaving Cardiff on a free transfer in January 2002 to return to Leyton Orient, where his career had begun.

In January 2003, Nugent signed for Swansea City on loan, making the move permanent a month later. He was released by the club's new manager Kenny Jackett in June 2004 but a week later, he was surprisingly re-signed as a player and also appointed assistant manager.

Including his appearances on loan, to the end of the 2005/06 season, Nugent had played 56 games for Swansea City in all competitions (with a further 27 appearances as a substitute) and had scored 19 goals. He retains his player registration, allowing him to play during injury crises, although he played only once during the 2005/06 season.
