Adkins Appointed As Hull Head Coach

Adkins Appointed As Hull Head Coach

Hull City have appointed Nigel Adkins as their new manager on an 18-month contract.

His first match as Hull boss will be Saturday's home game against Brentford.

Adkins may not be Hull's supporters' preferred option, however the 52-year-old has plenty of experience when it comes to winning promotion and he could use these past experiences in order to salvage the Tigers.

A Championship title victor whilst with Southampton, who he led to double promotions from League One into the Premier League, Adkins also has promotion success with Scunthorpe United under his belt along with spells at Reading and Sheffield United.

He had been tasked with steering the Blades to promotion from Sky Bet League One but they finished eight points off the play-offs and he was replaced by Chris Wilder. Adkins could stop the club from a free fall, having previously helped multiple teams rise through the tiers, starting with Scunthorpe United, who climbed to the Championship in 2007 and again in 2009.

Slutsky, the first Russian to manage an English club, was appointed by Hull last summer following the club's relegation from the top flight.

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.
