Boss who departed Watford in September was in frame for Championship job

Hull City reportedly held talks with ex-Watford boss Rob Edwards over their managerial vacancy. The Tigers considered the 39-year-old but decided not to hand him the job in the end, as detailed in a report by Hull Live.

The Championship side have now turned to former Fulham defender Liam Rosenior as their new head coach and he has penned a two-and-a-half-year contract with the Yorkshire club. Interim coach Andy Dawson will be remaining on the coaching staff.

Wait goes on

Edwards’ hunt for a new club goes on following his sacking by Watford. The Hornets brought him in over the summer following their relegation from the Premier League but he lasted just 11 games at the helm at Vicarage Road.

The Hertfordshire outfit have since brought in Slaven Bilic as his replacement and he has done a decent job so far. They are currently 6th in the table and four points off the top two.

Edwards spent his playing days as a defender for the likes of Aston Villa, Wolves and Blackpool before hanging up his boots in 2013. He then started his coaching career in the youth set-up at Molinuex before spells at AFC Telford United, England U16s and Forest Green Rovers.

Hull apparently took a look at him along with European pair Răzvan Lucescu and Nenad Bjelica but have now chosen Rosenior as the man to lead them forward. They take on Watford away on 11th December.
