Time at Club:
Rotherham are on the hunt for a new manager following the resignation of Kenny Jackett, who lasted just five games and 39 days at the helm. Former Millers boss Ronnie Moore is the favourite for the Championship post, while interim boss Paul Warne, Keith Hill and Steven Pressley are also in the mix.
Jackett replaced Alan Stubbs on 21st October 2016, but departed after picking up only one point from five games in charge.
Stubbs had left Scottish side Hibernian in the summer in order to take up the post with the Championship side. However, Stubbs endured a poor start to life in charge of the Millers, with just one win from thirteen games leading to his sacking.
Established in 1888, Rotherham United have generally played their football in the lower parts of the Football League, but in the early 2000s they found themselves battling it out with the creme de la creme of the Championship. However, they were unable to cement their place in the second tier of English football and were quickly relegated to League One before suffering another relegation. But, they returned in 2014 under Steve Evans, and have remainined in the second-tier since then.
Runners up in the Football League Cup in 1961 was one of their major highlights, whilst they did win some cup silverway when being victorious in the Football League Trophy back in 1996 after beating Shrewsbury Town 2-1 at Wembley. Meanwhile, in 2016 Neil Redfearn became the shortest-serving boss in the club's history - departing after just four months and 21 matches.
Rotherham United have not recorded a win in the last 10 games, forcing 1 draws against Ipswich Town. Defeats to Leeds United, Derby County, Preston North End, Reading, Birmingham City, Norwich City, Newcastle United, Huddersfield Town and Cardiff City has seen them concede 23 goals at an average of 2.3 per game while scoring just 9 to give them a -14 goal difference over this period.
