Steve Evans has been named as the new manager of Mansfield Town. Evans has returned to the dugout for the first time since leaving Leeds back in May, while he's previously managed the likes of Rotherham and Crawley.
Previously at Rotherham United, Evans achieved back-to-back promotions, taking the club from League Two to their current place in the Championship.
Currently at Leeds - where no manager is safe under the trigger-happy owner Massimo Cellino - the Glaswegian has seen his side struggle of late, but form has improved since the January transfer window.
Evans, who has previously managed the likes of Crawley, Boston (twice), and Stamford, is one of the more colourful characters in the dugout, with his sporting of a sombrero a particular highlight.

Steve Evans Quotes
They must think I'm Donald Duck.
There was a Millwall player who said we've not got bottle. Well, I've got 12 bottles of pink finest champagne and we'll be drinking them for about a week! Look forward to League One, son, and keep your trap shut!
I've got a nice bottle of Rothschild red for him (Sir Alex Ferguson). It was expensive, so don't tell my wife. It's on the credit card. It's a proper bottle.
