Ryan Lowe has agreed a deal to become Plymouth manager, according to journalist Pete O’Rourke.
It will be his second job in management, after a successful year in which he guided Bury to League One under difficult circumstances.
Lowe had been at Bury since 2017 in his third spell at the club, finishing his playing days there in 2018 before taking on managerial responsibilities.
Plymouth, meanwhile, sacked manager Derek Adams prior to their final league match against Scunthorpe this season, after which they were relegated to the bottom tier despite winning that match.
The move has been in the works for approximately two weeks after the BBC reported that Bury had granted Lowe permission to speak to the Pilgrims.
Since taking over Bury in January 2018, Lowe has won 32 of his 75 games in charge, equating to a win percentage of more than 42%. He amassed 79 points this season, enough to see Bury finish in second place, thus replacing Plymouth in League One.
Plymouth will likely have one of the biggest budgets in League Two and will aim to bounce back at the first time of asking, and they believe Lowe is to man to do that.
Ryan Lowe may only have a year of managerial experience under his belt but so far he has proved an impressive figure on the touchline. His years of playing have allowed him to develop a cool head and temperament that is required for management, and despite all the goings on behind the scenes at Bury he has guided them into League One.
Plymouth have good players at their disposal and it was a bit of a shock they were relegated. Lowe knows the level well and Plymouth fans should be confident that he can make it two promotions in two years.
