Hibs next manager: 10 out-of-work coaches who may fit the profile

Hibs are now searching for an experienced manager, but a left-field appointment is not out of the question. Here are ten 10 out-of-work but experienced managers who don’t feature high up in the bookies’ market but may well fit the profile.

For the second time in just four months, the Hibs hierarchy are searching for a new manager after the sudden dismissal of Shaun Maloney on Monday morning. The 39-year-old lasted merely 19 games in the hot seat at Easter Road before club chairman Ron Gordon decided to part ways with the former Celtic player, saying he had hoped the appointment of a “young, highly regarded coach” would help take Hibs forward but conceded that simply “it didn't work out.”

Former captain and cup final hero David Gray has been placed in temporary charge of the club, while Ross County boss Malky Mackay has been installed as the early front runner for the vacancy. However, it is possible that the club hierarchy could cast their net further afield in their search for the next boss.

It is understood that the club are looking for a boss who has youth on his side, plays an attacking brand of football and, crucially, has managerial experience.

Here we look at 10 out-of-work bosses who don’t feature high up in the betting but may well fit the profile.
