Grayson is back in football management after his sacking by Sunderland
Sunday, February 11, 2018
Bradford have appointed Simon Grayson as their new manager.
The 48-year-old, out of work since his sacking by Sunderland last October, succeeds Stuart McCall at Valley Parade.
A Bradford statement published on their official website read: “Grayson has been our number-one target to take over first-team affairs since the search began earlier this week.”
McCall was sacked following a run of six consecutive defeats in all competitions, but Grayson will take over a side who are still occupying the League One play-off positions.
He will meet the players on Monday and will be in charge for the Bantams trip to Charlton Athletic on Tuesday.
