Vastly experienced manager Steve Bruce led Hull City to automatic promotion from the Championship in the 2012/13 season and a return to the Barclays Premier League after a three-year absence.
After a successful playing career as a central defender, which included three Premier League titles with Manchester United, Bruce returned to the top tier of English football as manager of Birmingham City, having guided them to promotion in the 2001/02 campaign.
Bruce kept the Blues in the Premier League for four consecutive seasons before relegation in 2006, but he took them straight back up the following season.
He was appointed as Wigan Athletic manager in November 2007 and guided the Latics to 11th place in the 2008/09 Premier League season before leaving for Sunderland that summer. Two mid-table finishes followed before he was relieved of his duties at the Stadium of Light in 2011, a year prior to being appointed as Hull boss.
Bruce took charge of Hull in the summer of 2012 and guided them to the Premier League at the first time of asking, after the Tigers secured second place in the division following a dramatic final day of the Championship season.
In their first season in the Premier League under the management of Steve Bruce, Hull survived the threat of relegation with a 16th place finish and won qualification to the Europa League after a runners-up finish in the FA Cup.
