Hull City appoint former Sheffield United and Southampton as new Head Coach

Hull City appoint former Sheffield United and Southampton as new Head Coach

Hull City have confirmed the appointment of Nigel Adkins as their new head coach following the departure of former boss Leonid Slutsky earlier this week.

Slutsky and Hull parted company on Sunday evening, after the Russian made a hard start to life in the Sky Bet Championship, guiding the Tigers to just four victories from their opening 20 fixtures of the season.

A club statement read: "We are pleased to announce Nigel Adkins as the club's new head coach".

Adkins, who has been out of work since being sacked by Sheffield United in May 2016, guided the Saints to promotion to the Premier League in 2012.

Adkins, who is joined by assistant Andy Crosby, will oversee training on Friday morning and will be in the dugout for Saturday's championship clash at home to Brentford.

The former Tranmere and Wigan goalkeeper was then appointed manager of Sheffield United in 2015 but was sacked by the League One club less than a year later, with the Blades struggling in mid-table.

Adkins takes up the reins in Humberside with Hull languishing perilously close to the relegation zone in England's second tier.

Slutsky became the first Russian to manage an side in the English League system when he took over in June 2017, but his return of four wins from 20 Sky Bet Championship games led to the end of his tenure.

Hull had expected to mount a serious title challenge to try and gain an immediate promotion back to the Premier League after their relegation from the top flight last season.
