Adkins quits Hull City
Hull City today confirmed that head coach Nigel Adkins has rejected the offer of a new contract and will leave the club at the end of this month when his current deal runs out.
Assistant Head Coach Andy Crosby will also be leaving the KCOM Stadium.
In a statement, Nigel said: “I’d like to thank all the staff and players, and in particular Andy Crosby, my assistant, for the hard work, camaraderie, togetherness and support they have shown me and wish them all good luck with their future careers.”
He continued: “The unity the supporters have shown with the staff and players has also been very special. The fantastic relationship I have had with the fans makes leaving extremely difficult. I will take with me very special memories from the past 18 months.”
On its official website, a Hull City statement said the Club wanted to place on record its thanks for all of the hard work and dedication Nigel and Andy have shown since joining in December 2017, steering the side to Championship safety in the first few months and then a 13th-place finish last season. “We wish them both well for the future,” the statement added.
The club also confirmed the search for Nigel’s successor is already underway.
