Could Phil Brown return to Hull City?by Jack Kitson / 05 August 2016, 11:38Tweet
Another day, another twist in Hull City's search for a new manager.
Phil Brown has only gone and done a Randy Orton and stormed "Outta Nowhere" in the betting to replace Steve Bruce at Hull after Betfred slashed his odds from 50/1 down to just 2/1.
Brown, who has been in charge of Southend since March 2013, managed Hull for just over three years, during which he famously led the Tigers up to the Premier league for the first time in their history.
The 57-year-old could now be set to make a shock return to East Yorkshire, although you can't take anything for granted in this particular market.
In the last 24 hours both Neil Warnock and Tim Sherwood have plunged in the betting, only to each now drift out to 20/1 and 33/1 respectively (both best prices).
Meanwhile, Wales manager Chris Coleman remains the narrow favourite for the post ahead of Brown, Hull's caretaker boss Mike Phelan, and the out-of-work duo of Gianfranco Zola and Steve McClaren.
