Next Hibs manager: 8 men who could replace Nick Montgomery at Easter Road - including ex-Sunderland boss

Hibs are on the lookout for another boss after the sacking of Nick Montgomery.

Hibs are once again in search of a new head coach after Nick Montgomery was sacked by the club on Tuesday morning.

A 4-0 home defeat to Aberdeen put at end to the 42-year-old’s eight-month reign at Easter Road, with the club admitting Montgomery and his coaching staff did “not deliver the results we had hoped for” in a club statement.

They added it was “not a decision we made lightly” but admitted it felt like a “necessary one to move the team forward”. Assistant head coach Sergio Raimundo and goalkeeping coach Miguel Miranda have also departed Hibs with immediate effect.

With a revamp that includes the appointment of a new sporting director expected at Easter Road in the coming weeks, the appointment of a new head coach that suits the model the club hope to implement is vital to Hibs long-term - and short-term - future. Former captain David Gray will step into the hot seat for a fourth time as caretaker manager for the club’s remaining two games of the season against Motherwell and bottom side Livingston. But which man will be handed the task of turning the ship around at Hibs in the coming weeks and months?

Here are eight bosses who could be next in the Easter Road dugout.
