After playing for Manchester United, Norwich City and Leicester City, Mark Robins moved into coaching with another former club, Rotherham, initially as head of youth before becoming manager in March 2007.
Guiding them through a period of instability, he left the club at the top of League Two in
September 2009 to take charge of Championship side Barnsley, who he saved from relegation.
He has subsequently managed Huddersfield Town and Scunthorpe, and is currently in his second spell in charge of Coventry City. He won the FA Trophy with Coventry in 2017 and led the club to promotion to League One via the playoffs the following season. He also secured the club promotion to the EFL Championship as League One winners in 2020.
A graduate of the LMA’s Certificate of Applied Management, he also enjoyed a consultancy role with the Premier League on the Elite Player Performance Plan.
