Manager Profile

Owen Coyle is back working in England with Championship side Blackburn Rovers, a club he'll be bidding to lead up into the Premier League.

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.

Owen Coyle Quotes

The day I decided to leave (Burnley) was horrible and I was crying as I left. The chairman was too. It really pulled at your heart strings. It was so emotional and we all got wrapped up in it.
