Rosenior Appointed new City Head Coach

Hull City are delighted to announce Liam Rosenior as the club’s new head coach.

The highly regarded 38-year-old has signed a two-and-a-half-year deal at the MKM Stadium.

The former full-back returns to East Yorkshire having made 161 appearances in black and amber during a five-year spell from 2010 to 2015, winning promotion from the Championship in 2012/13.

Rosenior was a key member of the Tigers team that secured our highest league finish of 16th in the Premier League and reached a first FA Cup final in 2013/14.

The ex-Bristol City, Fulham and Reading defender took up his first coaching position at Brighton & Hove Albion in 2018 following his retirement from playing, working as assistant coach with their Under-23s.

Joining Derby County’s coaching set-up in July 2019, initially as specialist first-team coach to Phillip Cocu, he was promoted to assistant manager under Wayne Rooney in January 2021.

Rosenior helped Derby stave off relegation in 2020/21 and although the Rams succumbed to the drop last season, they put up a valiant effort amid off-field uncertainty and points deductions.

Following Rooney’s departure, he was handed the reins on an interim basis and presided over seven wins from his 12 games in charge, leaving Derby seventh in League One.

We would like to thank Andy Dawson for his efforts as interim head coach and can confirm he will remain part of the club’s coaching staff.

The full make-up of Rosenior’s backroom team will be confirmed in due course.
