The Magpies earmarked Tribe from sporting director Dan Ashworth’s former club after Mark Leyland left to become Head of Coaching Methodology at City Football Group this summer.
“Losing key members of staff is never ideal but I’ve been here many times before when that’s happened,” Howe told NewcastleWorld previously. “It’s part of growing.
“People will always be looking for elite members of staff and that’s one of the things we have to be aware of as a football I think. Mark goes, but he’ll go with our best wishes.
“He’s one of a number of people behind the scenes that have put a tireless amount of work in to try and improve the team. We love him to bits and he’s been an integral part of our team.”
Tribe spent five years as Brighton’s senior first-team performance analyst having previously worked in various other analyst roles after initially joining on a work placement in 2012.
As per the job description, Tribe’s role will involve delivering ‘a wide variety of performance analysis services within the first-team environment with a key focus on set plays’.
Newcastle’s Premier League season gets underway on Saturday (kick-off 5:30pm) with Aston Villa the visitors to St James’ Park.
