Link to Blackpool staff member
He first made the move to Wednesday in 2019, with Steve Bruce bringing him alongside David Downes.
The pair worked together at Hillsborough for nearly five years, before the now-Blackpool sporting director made the move to Bloomfield Road in the summer.
Hughes was also with Downes during his time at Aston Villa, spending two years as a performance analyst for the Lions.
Prior to that, he also held a role with Hull City A.F.C.
The Owls analyst is no stranger to Lancashire, having studied sports coaching at UCLan.
Previous stint with the Seasiders
During this time, his CV includes a voluntary stint at Bloomfield Road as a analyst assistant between October 2011 and May 2012.
