The former Leeds youngster believes the club are much more stable nowadays.
Couzens said: “He [Hart] is a great appointment and adds to the fantastic ones over the last few months from Uwe Rosler to Adam Pearson. We seem to be a more stable club these days, which is brilliant.”
This perception of the club is almost completely reversed from how Leeds were viewed at times last season.
With Massimo Cellino owning the club, but banned by the Football League, many believed that the Whites were set up for failure and could find themselves falling down the leagues with ease.
They got through three full-time managers last season, as well as Neil Redfearn spending a temporary spell in charge, and it appeared as if Cellino had brought his brand of insane ownership to Elland Road.
However, the club has stabilised this summer, appointing a progressive manager in Uwe Rosler, an experienced director in Adam Pearson, and a proven youth director in Hart.
Impressive summer signings have been made, and the side look well set to fight at the top end of the Championship table, having yet to lose a game this league season.
Couzins believes that Leeds are looking like a much more stable club nowadays, and that is sure to help them as they plan to finally leave the second tier and head back to the Premier League.
