Biography

A former player with spells at Livingston, Cowdenbeath and East Fife, Tam played predominantly at junior football level including captaining the Scottish junior international side, before moving into management at the age of 32. It was after five years in charge of Kelty Hearts that Tam arrived at Tannadice, in January 2019, when he was appointed Head of Tactical Performance as part of the club's Academy.

He stepped up to coaching the Under-18s squad in 2020, and a year later, following the departure of Micky Mellon, Tam was appointed as Head Coach of the first team, making him the club's first internal managerial appointment since Peter Houston.
