Coppell confirmed as Robins boss

Published Add your comment

Bristol City have confirmed the appointment of Steve Coppell as their new manager on a 12-month rolling contract.

The 54-year-old former England international has been out of work since resigning from his post at Reading last summer.

Coppell will replace Gary Johnson, who left Ashton Gate after five years in charge in March, although caretaker manager Keith Millen, who himself had been in the running for the post, will stay in charge for the last two games of the season.
