Former Hibs coach explains why he turned down chance to become Hearts manager
Derek Adams has revealed why he turned down the chance to become next manager of Hearts.
He told the Daily Record: “Ironically, I was offered an interview there the day I was down at Morecambe signing my contract. Hearts are such a big club and it was appealing but I had already given my word to Morecambe that I was going to take their manager’s job.
“The owners and chairman at Morecambe are very good people and they were giving me the opportunity to manage again in England which was a big thing for me.
“It wouldn’t have looked good on myself to walk out of Morecambe for an interview at Hearts.
“I know that I made the right decision.”
The job would eventually go to former Barnsley boss Daniel Stendel.
