Joe Dunne was named as part of Wayne Brown's management team, along with Dave Huzzey at the end of the 2021/22 Sky Bet League Two season.

In the time between spells with the club, Dunne has coached at Cambridge United, initially as assistant between 2015 and 2018, and as permanent Head Coach for a stint in 2018. 

The former defender has also been at Bristol Rovers and Stevenage recently and was also back with Colchester United in the 2020/21 season, when Wayne Brown was interim Head Coach.
