Brown’s departure confirmed

Hull City and Phil Brown have finally reached an agreement to formally end their former manager's reign at the KC Stadium.

Brown was placed on gardening leave in March with the Tigers deep in relegation trouble, with Iain Dowie drafted in to try and engineer a change in fortunes.

However, City failed to improve and dropped out of the Premier League after two seasons, while Brown's future was unclear for a period of time.

His exit from Hull has now been confirmed, though, with a club statement reading:"The club confirms that Phil Brown's contract has ended with immediate effect and that he is no longer the manager of Hull City.

"We thank Phil for his significant contribution during his time as manager and we wish him well for the future.

"The club greatly appreciates Phil's co-operation, patience and understanding throughout the conciliation process.

"In addition, the club would also like to thank the League Managers' Association for their constructive involvement throughout and we are pleased that we have been able to resolve all outstanding issues."
