Ex-Hull City manager Phil Brown has exclusively told Love Sport he is on the lookout for a new job, and is even going to study to try and find it!

Former top flight manager Phil Brown has had a strong and glowing career in management. He began his coaching career as assistant manager to Sam Allardyce at Blackpool, before moving on to start his own career in senior management.

Across several clubs such as Derby County, Hull City, Preston North End, Southend United and Swindon Town, he has always come across as a likeable, if slightly controversial character. He infamously lectured his Hull City players on the pitch at the Etihad at half-time, with Jimmy Bullard recreating it as a goal celebration at Manchester City just a year later.

Phil Brown’s last managerial stint was a year long period in the Indian Super League and the last time he managed in England was for Swindon Town, as they narrowly missed out on the League Two play-offs with him as manager.

Speaking to Johnny Burrow and David Prutton on Posh Boys on Love Sport Drive, he was asked if he was looking to get back into management, he said: "Very much, there's going to be a lot of opportunities. [There] is going to be a lot of unfortunate souls that are going to lose their job.

"I know that's the nature of the game, but it's never too late to learn."

He also exclusively told Love Sport that he’s undertaking a degree to try and further his learning in football management:

"I've just joined the group hopefully for the Diploma in football management which has been well and truly, you know, advocated and advertised by the likes of Sean Dyche, people like that.

"So I'm going back to school now, whether that be taking a year out in a gap year.

"I'm going to a Liverpool University in June and start a year off in the diploma and that will be the Pro License and the diploma so in terms of  qualifications, it's never too late to learn.

"And there's some great examples out there. If you keep on learning you keep on getting a chance and hopefully that'll be the same one day for me."
