In the summer/autumn of 2014, former professional goalkeeper Dean Greygoose joined Norwich City's Academy as goalkeeping coach.

Dean began his long football career at Cambridge United, where he signed a professional contract in November 1982, and made his debut during the 1983-84 season. In total, he played 26 league games for Cambridge, but was mostly the team's reserve goalkeeper, behind Malcolm Webster and later Keith Branagan. Spells at Leyton Orient (1 appearance) and Crystal Palace followed, before signing for Crewe in August 1987, where he spent six seasons as first-choice goalkeeper, making 205 first team appearances.

In 1993, Greygoose was released by Crewe, and joined Conference side Northwich Victoria where he spent another six seasons before leaving the Vics at the end of the 1998-99 season. He has since played for a number of non-league clubs, including Altrincham, Chester City, Stevenage Borough, AFC Sudbury and Soham Town Rangers. Greygoose joined Bury Town during the 2006-07 season, and played for the club until retiring in July 2009 and working as a goalkeeping coach at Bury Town, and as joint manager of Team Bury.

In June 2012 he joined Kettering Town FC as assistant manager to John Beck and goalkeeping coach. He has also been Assistant Manager at Histon and Ely City, goalkeeping coach at Crewe, Cambridge and Ipswich's Academy as well as Manchester City's community programme. In May 2013, he was appointed manager of Haverhill Rovers; he left there on 26th August 2014.

At the end of September 2014, Dean joined Diss Town as Assistant Manager

He later joined Mildenhall as manager. When they won the Eastern Counties League title, amassing 99 points, and won promotion to the Isthmian League in the summer of 2017, he left his role with Norwich.

By the summer of 2022 he was Academy Goalkeeping Coach for Cambridge United.
