Hull City have identified Lincoln City manager Danny Cowley as a potential replacement for Nigel Adkins, according to the Hull Daily Mail.
Hull are looking for a new manager, after Adkins’ decision to reject his contract offer and leave the club after 18 months in charge at the KCOM Stadium.
This latest report states that Hull will look to finalise their shortlist of candidates within the next 24 hours, with the hope of beginning the interview process before the end of the week.
Cowley has emerged high on Hull’s list of targets, after guiding Lincoln to two promotions in three seasons, but the Tigers would have to pay £500,000 in compensation to get him.
So, would Cowley be a good appointment for Hull? We discuss…
“I think this would be a good move from Hull.
“Cowley has worked wonders during his time at Lincoln and their two promotions show that he will not be phased by a step up in level.
“You feel he too could be tempted by the chance of managing in the Championship, and that may be a worry for Lincoln.”
“I think Cowley would be an excellent appointment for Hull.
“He’s been linked with no end of clubs given the job he has done with Lincoln, so it would be a real coup if the Tigers were to hire him as their new manager.
“He’s a fantastic coach, a great man-manager, and can work without the biggest of budgets.
“I just can’t see it happening, though.”
“This would be a good appointment for Hull City.
“Cowley is a very good coach and has done a fantastic job at Lincoln. I think he’s more than capable of making the step up to the Championship.
“He could be tempted the chance to manage in the second tier and a club like Hull would be a great opportunity for him to make the step up to the next level.”
