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 has been tasked with leading the south coast club up to League One.

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.

He (his dad) did actually sack me. He phoned me to tell me I was getting the sack and I then had to phone the chairman about the situation."

The Sack Race's Opinion

Adams entered the managerial arena at the tender age of just 32, but instead of being overawed he has since flourished during two successful spells at Ross County. Now managing in England Adams will be targeting success with Plymouth, a club which is desperate to move back up the football ladder following a tough few seasons in the bottom tier.
