Sunderland have confirmed former Bolton and Bradford manager Phil Parkinson until 2022 as their new manager on a bargain.
The 51-year-old replaces Jack Ross, who had been sacked by the Black Cats on 8 October after winning five of the first 11 League One matches this period.
Parkinson spent three years in charge of Bolton, winning promotion.
He resigned as director in August, using Wanderers underside of the tier following being deducted 12 points.
“It is both a privilege and massive responsibility to be appointed manager of this terrific club,” Parkinson said.
“This is a great group of players, and I relish the challenge of coping together to reach our goal of promotion from League One.”
