Brian McDermott – 14/1

Since parting company with Leeds, Brian McDermott has remained quiet on the scene. With Huddersfield simply down the motorway from his former employers, it could be a sensible route back into management.

McDermott lead Reading to the Play-Off final back in 2011 and into the Premier League the season after for a one year stint in which he did not make the full season after being sacked in March.

Since getting the sack at Reading, McDermott took the hot seat at Leeds United after replacing Neil Warnock.

His first and only full season at Leeds United was a colorful season to say the least in which he saw himself guide the club to a 15th place finish, one which Leeds fans were disappointed with in a year where matters off the field overshadowed what took place on the field. This saw a crazy week take place in January where Massimo Cellino, looking set to take over the club, put former Middlesbrough defender Gianluca Festa sit in the dugout for a draw against Ipswich.

On the Friday, McDermott was sacked and seemingly booted out of the club seeing his assistant take charge for a game against Huddersfield Town where Leeds won 5-1 before McDermott being reappointed on Monday when claims came out that he never was sacked in the first place.

Since being replaced at Leeds by Dave Hockaday, McDermott wants another job in football management and as a man who possesses such thick skin, taking over at Huddersfield would not phase him.
