Steve Bruce oversaw one of the most successful periods in Hull City’s history. Enjoy this slideshow of his time in charge.
After joining in 2012, he oversaw promotion to the Premier League in his first season in charge and then in the 2013-14 campaign, he guided the Tigers to their first ever FA Cup final, where they eventually lost 3-2 to Arsenal in a thrilling game.
They were eliminated before the group stages of the Europa League at the start of a 2014-15 season that ended in relegation.
However, Hull won promotion back to the Premier League at the first time of asking, defeating Yorkshire rivals Sheffield Wednesday 1-0 in the play-off final at Wembley.
After being interviewed for the England manager’s job earlier this week, Bruce appears to have quit the club on the eve of the new top-flight season.
