Owen Coyle Named Blackburn Rovers Manager
Blackburn Rovers are delighted to announce that Owen Coyle has been appointed as the club’s new manager. The former Burnley and Bolton Wanderers boss takes charge at Ewood Park after putting pen-to-paper on a two-year-deal.
Coyle will work alongside assistant manager Alan Irvine and first team coach Rob Kelly, as he looks to change Rovers fortunes, the club is currently 100 million in debut with a poor team that has been involved in a relegation battle for the last two seasons.
Rovers director Mike Cheston said, “We are delighted to welcome Owen to the club, he brings a wealth of management experience and a strong track record in the Championship and we believe he will complement our existing coaching staff perfectly.
Since leaving Turf Moor, according to Coyle for a bigger club in Bolton Wanderers, his management record has been poor getting Bolton Wanderers and Wigan Athletic relegated before having an unsuccessful period in the MSL at Houston who are bottom of the league with Coyle resigning last week.
Speaking about his appointment Owen Coyle said, “First and foremost, I’m absolutely thrilled and honoured to be Blackburn Rovers manager and I look forward to working with the terrific people at the club. The ultimate aim is to give a team that is representative of the fans, a team that is entertaining and hard working and a team that can win.”
