Hull boss Phil Brown has agreed a 12-month rolling contract to continue as the club´s manager.
Brown, who guided the Tigers to safety in the Championship after taking over full-time last December, is expected to sign the deal within 48 hours.
"It is great news for us. I am delighted," Pearson told the Hull Daily Mail. "The contract is being drawn up and hopefully Phil should be signing on Tuesday or Wednesday."
