Brian McDermott has worked his way up the ranks, from managing Slough and Woking to fulfilling a number of roles with Reading, including Under-19, reserve and eventually first-team manager.
McDermott got Reading promoted to the Premier League in 2012 but his joy was short-lived as he was sacked in March 2013 following a tough introduction to life in the top-flight.
McDermott was back in management with Leeds during the ill-fated reign of owner Massimo Cellino, before returning to Reading for a brief spell six month spell.
