West Brom choose Alan Irvine from Everton academy as new manager on 1-year contract
WEST BROMWICH, England - West Bromwich Albion gave new manager Alan Irvine a one-year rolling contract on Saturday.
Irvine, the manager of the academy at Everton, replaces Pepe Mel, who was fired a day after leading West Brom to 17th in the English Premier League and securing topflight football for a fifth straight season.
West Brom technical director Terry Burton says, "Alan was at the forefront of our thoughts," and "he has a vast knowledge from grassroots up thanks to the roles he has performed during his decades in the game."
It is the 58-year-old Irvine's third job as a manager, after stints at Sheffield Wednesday and Preston North End in the English second tier. Under him, both teams were relegated.
