Owen Coyle is out-of-work after leaving his post at Blackburn Rovers after just 37 games.
Coyle had his first full time coaching appointment at St Johnstone in 2005 and he quickly led the team back to the SPL winning promotion as well as performing well in the cup competitions.
Coyle's impressive work at The Saints brought him to the attention of a number of clubs in England and he duly jumped at the chance to head south of the border to test his skills in the Championship with Burnley. Coyle brought unexpected success to the Clarets in his first full season in charge by leading them to a play-off final win over Reading as the won promotion to the Premier League.
Coyle went on to have a brief spell in charge of Wigan in 2013, and then MLS Houston Dynamo, with whom he managed between December 2014 and May 2016.
