Hull City have moved to bring in a new manager to the club, and have chosen former Doncaster Rovers manager Gran McCann to lead them. McCann took Rovers to the playoffs in League One last season but lost in the semi finals against Charlton, who were the team to eventually get promoted from the division. Now he gets the chance to show off his skills at a higher level, with a short move to the east of Yorkshire. 

McCann had only been at Doncaster for one season, after arriving there from Peterborough. He joins Hull on a 12 month rolling deal, and comes in three weeks after the club parted ways with Adkins. Hull vice-chairman Ehab Allam has said that McCann was the standout best candidate that the club interviewed and that his philosophies fit in with where the club wants to go, and how they want to get there. 

This will be a good test for the 39 year old, who is looking to further his career and based on what we have seen so far, it appears as though he could have a good one ahead of him. 

It will be interesting to see how much backing McCann receives from the Hull board, as they could do with improving their squad. They are priced at 7/2 to be relegated which shows they are among the potential relegation candidates, while they are only 6/1 to finish in the top six, showing they are probably only a couple of players from being involved with the better teams in the division.
