Picking the right pass forward – Issue 22 (May 2012)
Phil Brown is a vastly experienced British football manager, who learnt much of his trade as assistant manager to Sam Allardyce at Bolton Wanderers.
After a debut managerial appointment at Derby County in 2005, Brown switched to Hull City for the 2006/07 season, initially as first-team coach, before stepping into the hotseat in January 2008. He took the Tigers out of the Championship relegation places, and the following season secured promotion to the Premier League for the first time in the club’s history.
Securing their top flight status the following year, Brown departed Hull in June 2010 and spent a year at Preston North End.
As a player, Brown was a consistent and dogged right-back, who made over 650 appearances for Hartlepool United, Halifax Town, Bolton Wanderers and Blackpool.
