Hull fires manager Phil Brown
Phil Brown was fired as manager of Hull with the club in 19th
place in the Premier League and in danger of relegation.
Brown took over from Phil Parkinson in January 2007 and led Hull
to the top division for the first time in its 104-year history in
2008-09, beating Bristol City in a playoff.
The Tigers are 5-15-9 for 24 points with nine games left, five
points ahead of last-place Portsmouth and three points behind
17th-place Wolverhampton, the last club above the relegation
Brown brought in American forward Jozy Altidore on loan for this
“Thanks to Phil Brown for all he did for Hull,” Altidore wrote
Monday on Twitter.
Brian Horton and Steve Parkin were put in temporary charge.
