West Brom name Tony Pulis as manager

2015-01-01 13:01

West Bromwich Albion has hired Tony Pulis as its fourth manager in just over a year to keep the club in the Premier League.

The central England team said on its website that “Pulis has agreed a two-and-a-half-year contract with the Baggies”.

He takes charge after West Brom’s league match at West Ham today.

West Brom fired Alan Irvine on Monday just four months into his first season with the team only a point above the relegation zone.

The 56-year-old Pulis had been out of work since leaving Crystal Palace in August two days before the start of the season.

The former Stoke coach has never been relegated as a manager and helped Palace to 11th place last season, leading to the Premier League manager of the year award.
