Sean Dyche returned to the Premier League when was appointed manager of Everton on 30 January, 2023.
Kettering-born Dyche started his playing career in the youth ranks at Nottingham Forest before joining Chesterfield in 1990.
The defender made over 250 appearances, captained the club and scored in their famous FA Cup semi-final against Middlesbrough in 1997.
Bristol City signed Dyche in 2007 and he helped the club gain promotion to the Championship in his first season.
Following a brief loan spell with Luton Town, Dyche joined Millwall in 2009 and also achieved promotion to the Championship with the London club.
He signed for Watford in 2002 and captained them during the 2004/05 season.
That was to be his last season as a player with the club and he signed for Northampton Town before retiring in 2007.
Dyche’s coaching career started with Watford’s youth team shortly after and he soon made his way up to assistant manager under Malky Mackay.
The Scot left Watford ahead of the 2011/12 campaign and Dyche was promoted to become the Hornets’ manager in June 2011, with his first match in charge coming against Burnley at Turf Moor.
Watford and Dyche parted company in 2012 and the Englishman then spent a spell working with the England Under-21 side as part of the staff put together by Stuart Pearce, a former playing colleague at Forest.
Burnley announced Dyche as their manager in October 2012 and he guided the club to a second-place finish in the 2013/14 Championship, securing automatic promotion to the Premier League.
Dyche was unable to keep the Clarets in the top flight but he guided them to an immediate Premier League return, lifting the Championship trophy in 2015/16.
Burnley came 16th in the top tier the following season and were then seventh in 2017/18 - their best-ever Premier League finish.
Dyche preserved the Clarets' Premier League status with 15th, 10th and 17th-placed finishes and twice won the Barclays Manager of the Month award.
He left Turf Moor in April 2022, with the club in 18th, four points from safety.
