On 3 May, it was announced that Bromby would join Leeds academy coaching team full-time. On 11 July 2014, Bromby and Under 18's manager Richard Naylor were made redundant by owner Massimo Cellino.

On 4 August 2014, Bromby joined Huddersfield Town as Professional Development Coach. He is currently Academy Manager, and will be appointed as the club’s new Head of Football Operations at the end of the 2019/20 season.


He made his Leeds debut in the 2–0 league victory over Stockport County. Bromby gave away a penalty in his second start for Leeds, however Leeds goalkeeper Shane Higgs saved Southend United striker Lee Barnard's penalty. Since joining Leeds Bromby has played in the centre back and right back roles. Bromby scored his first goal for Leeds in another match against Stockport County, with a strike in the closing stages to put Leeds 3–2 ahead. Bromby received his 5th booking of the season in the same game against Stockport and missed the next match – an FA Cup 3rd round tie against Manchester United. With Bromby being a Leeds fan, the suspension was especially tough to take. Leeds ended up pulling off a famous victory against Manchester United with Bromby's replacement Jason Crowe putting in a fantastic performance. Crowe's performance earned him a start ahead of Bromby in the following game against Wycombe Wanderers with Bromby having to settle for a place on the bench. With captain Richard Naylor out injured for the FA Cup 4th round match against Tottenham Hotspur, Bromby played at the heart of Leeds' defence and helped Leeds earn a 2–2 draw and a replay against their Premier League opposition. Bromby started Leeds' last game of the season, replacing the injured captain Richard Naylor. Leeds won the game 2–1 and thus sealed promotion to The Championship.

Bromby started the Championship season as Leeds' fourth choice defender, with Naylor, Collins and new signing Alex Bruce ahead of him in the starting lineup. Bromby made his first league appearance of the season on 16 October for Leeds when he came on as a second-half substitute against Middlesbrough. He made only his second appearance of the season on 18 December against Queens Park Rangers when he came on as an early first-half substitute for Alex Bruce in Leeds 2–0 win over the league leaders. Bromby made his third appearance of the season as a substitute against Arsenal on 8 January. Leeds were 1–0 up when Robert Snodgrass scored a second half penalty, Arsenal equalised in the 90th minute when Cesc Fàbregas scored a penalty.

Bromby started the first two games of the season for Leeds on the bench against Southampton and Bradford City but he came into the starting lineup for Leeds' first league home game of the season against Middlesbrough. After missing games through injury, Bromby came back into Leeds' starting lineup replacing the suspended Patrick Kisnorbo on 20 September, coming into the side for a League Cup tie against fierce rivals Manchester United. Bromby kept his place for Leeds in a 3–3 draw against Brighton & Hove Albion, during which he conceded a penalty.

At the start of the 2013/14 season on 25 July 2013, Bromby announced his retirement as a footballer due to his knee injury, and he officially joined the Leeds academy full-time as the club's Under 16's coach.

Bromby joined the Leeds United coaching set up on 3 April 2013, after taking his coaching badges whilst injured, after the sacking of Neil Warnock, Bromby became a coach of Leeds' Under 18 side to assist Chris Coates who was covering for Richard Naylor.


However Bromby's injury was so severe it was announced by the club that he will miss the entire 2012/13 season with the injury.

At the club's annual 2012/2013 end of season awards, despite missing the whole season through injury, Bromby won the club's Community Award for all his work within the community.

Having missed the whole of the 2012–13 season due to injury, Bromby was released from his playing contract, but would carry on a role as a coach in Leeds' academy.

His final appearance for United had been in a league fixture against his new club, two days previously. His former manager, Bryan Robson, admitted that he did not want to sell Bromby, but he had wanted regular football and Watford's offer had been reasonable. On 2 February 2008, Bromby made his debut for Watford at home against Wolverhampton Wanderers. Within the first minute his long throw set up Steve Kabba to score in an eventual 3–0 victory. After only a year at Vicarage Road Bromby returned to Sheffield United on a six-month loan with a view to a permanent deal.
