Time at Club:
Birmingham City have appointed their former assistant Steve Cotterill on a two-and-a-half-year deal following the departure of Harry Redknapp who left after six successive defeats in all competitions.
Redknapp had signed a one-year contract after saving the club from relegation out of the Championship. Redknapp replaced Gianfranco Zola with three games of the 2016/17 season remaining, winning two games as the Blues preserved their second-tier status.
Birmingham have had four different spells in the Premier League, the longest being four seasons between 2007 and 2011, however they've been stuck in the Championship since 2011. The Blues have had their fair share of managers over the years, including the likes of Steve Bruce, Chris Hughton, Alex McLeish, and Gary Rowett.
A mixed set of recent results has seen Birmingham City collect wins versus Fulham, Sheffield United & Bolton Wanderers while suffering adverse results at Reading, Middlesbrough, Queens Park Rangers, Wolverhampton Wanderers & Bristol City. Draws against Norwich City & Burton Albion has seen them show mid-table form at best.
