Owen Coyle

Former footballer and manager, Owen Coyle,  played as a striker for several clubs in England and Scotland and played once for the Republic of Ireland national team.

Owen began his career at Dumbarton and also played for Clydebank and Airdrieonians before joining English club Bolton Wanderers in 1993. He appeared for Bolton in the Premier League before a return to Scotland with Dundee United.


He went on to play for several other Scottish clubs including 

Motherwell, Dunfermline Athletic, Falkirk and St Johnstone.


Qualifying by descent, he played for the Republic of Ireland under-21s and B team before he made one full international appearance in 1994.

Upon retiring from playing, he managed Falkirk and St Johnstone, before joining then Championship side Burnley in November 2007.

In his first full season in charge, Burnley won promotion to the Premier League in 2009. He then moved to Bolton Wanderers in January 2010, halfway through his first season in the Premier League.


 Owen stated this move was due to Bolton being "ten years ahead of Burnley". After leaving Bolton in October 2012, he was appointed manager of Wigan Athletic in June 2013, only to leave the club on 2 December 2013.


He was made head coach of Houston Dynamo in December 2014, until he left by mutual agreement in May 2016. He then managed Blackburn Rovers between June 2016 and February 2017. He returned to Scotland to manage Ross County in September 2017, but resigned from this position after just five months.
