Derek Adams is a Scottish football manager who is currently in charge of League Two side Plymouth Argyle. Adams replaced John Sheridan in the Green Army dugout in June 2015, and led the club up League One in 2016/17.
Adams ventured into the managerial arena back in 2007 with Scottish outfit Ross County, with whom he has since enjoyed two spells at, firstly winning the Second Division title, then returning to lead his troops up to the top-flight for the first time in the club's history.
This fantastic achievement won Adams numerous plaudits, and saw him deservedly be crowned the PFA Scotland Manager of the Year. Adams also steered the Dingwalls club to the Scottish cup final and two Scottish Challenge cup finals.
In between his spells at Ross County Adams was Colin Calderwood's assistant at SPL side Hibernian, while in 2015 he decided to venture south of the border to take charge of Plymouth, after taking an invaluable year's sabbatical during which he broadened his knowledge of the beautiful game.
