Next Rotherham United Manager Odds

Rotherham United are on the lookout for a new manager following the sacking of Matt Taylor in the aftermath of the Millers 5-0 away loss to Watford on 11th November.

Taylor initially joined Rotherham on 4th October 2022 following Paul Warne’s shock departure to Derby County. The ex-Exeter City manager would go on to oversee 55 matches at the AESSEAL New York Stadium, winning 10 and drawing 18, equating to an 18% win percentage.

At present, Rotherham are 22nd in the Championship, meaning that they occupy the final relegation place while being four points behind 21st-placed Huddersfield.

Leam Richardson Odds: 11/8

Could Leam Richardson become the Millers' next manager? The bookmakers certainly think so, having seen his odds slashed from 5/1 to 11/8.

The 43-year-old was sacked by Wigan earlier on back in November 2022 and had done a good job at the DW Stadium, having saved the club from relegation in League One during 2020/21 following financial troubles, before getting the Latics promoted to the Championship last season as they won the league title.

But, following a run of six losses in seven games this season, which saw Wigan sit in the Championship’s relegation zone, Richardson was sacked to the disappointment of many Wigan fans. Richardson ended his time at the Latics with 49 wins and 30 draws from 117 matches across all competitions, equating to a 42% win rate.

Steve Evans Odds: 3/1

Steve Evans could be in line to make a shock return to Rotherham, having coached the Millers between April 2012 and September 2015.

During his time with the Millers, Evans memorably finished as runner-up in League Two during the 2012/13 season and led the club to promotion from League One in 2013/14 via the play-offs. The 61-year-old finished with a win percentage of 42% having won 72 of his 173 matches in charge, having departed in late September 2015 before moving on to Leeds United.

At present, Evans is Stevenage's manager and managed to earn the club a shock promotion from League Two last season via a second-place finish. The Glaswegian has currently got a 52.7% win rate at the Lamex Stadium having won 48 and drawn 23 of his 91 matches in charge of the club.

Gary Rowett Odds: 4/1

Gary Rowett is another name that has been linked to the vacancy at Rotherham, despite only leaving Millwall on 18th October.

The 49-year-old has shown that he is a very capable Championship manager despite having restricted budgets while at Birmingham and Millwall.

During his most recent spell at Millwall, Rowett led the club to a seventh-placed finish in the 2022/23 season, missing out on the play-offs following a dramatic 4-3 home loss to Blackburn Rovers on the final day of the season. Since Rowett’s departure from the Lions, they have won just one of their last five Championship matches.

Ryan Cresswell Odds: 6/1

Former Rotherham United defender Ryan Cresswell is a shock candidate for the vacancy at his former club.

The 35-year-old is yet to have any managerial experience in the football league, having managed Parkgate in 2021 before making the switch to Sheffield in 2021, leading them to a ninth-place finish in the Northern Premier League Division One during the 2022/23 season.

Cresswell made a total of 38 league appearances for the Millers between 2010 and 2012 and could certainly be an intriguing choice to replace Matt Taylor.

Chris Wilder Odds: 11/1

Chris Wilder has been linked with numerous managerial roles since his departure from Watford at the end of last season despite his disastrous spell at Vicarage Road.

The 55-year-old managed both Watford and Middlesbrough during the 2022/23 campaign, with the former role seeing him win just three of his 11 matches in charge.

At Boro, Wilder won 18 of his 45 matches in charge at the Riverside Stadium with his record being significantly worsened following a run of two wins in his last 11 matches which left the Teesiders in the relegation zone. However, despite this setback, Wilder will be fondly remembered for times at other clubs he has managed.

Notably, Wilder took Sheffield United to the Premier League via finishing as runner-up in the Championship during the 2018/19 season, this was after winning League One with the Blades in 2016/17. On top of this, he has also managed promotions with the likes of Alfreton Town, Oxford United and Northampton Town.

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink Odds: 12/1

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has emerged as a surprise contender for the vacancy at Rotherham.

The ex-Chelsea striker was most recently manager of Burton Albion, but, was sacked on 5th September 2022 following 30 wins in 85 matches in charge of the Brewers. That was the 51-year-old’s second spell at the Pirelli Stadium, having won League Two in 2014/15 and previously departing for QPR with a 61% win percentage, winning 33 of his 54 games at the helm.

Hasselbaink’s other two managerial jobs in England have been underwhelming, having taken charge of 47 matches as QPR manager between December 2015 and November 2016, winning just 13 matches, while the former Netherlands international’s other role saw him somehow end up with a worse win percentage at Northampton Town, having won 23.8% of his matches from September 2017 to April 2018.

Karl Robinson Odds: 12/1

Former Oxford United manager Karl Robinson is also an outsider for the job at Rotherham.

Robinson is perhaps best known for his six-year spell as MK Dons manager between 2010 and 2016 where he earned them promotion to the Championship back in the 2014/15 season via a second-place finish.

Following his time at MK, the 41-year-old Liverpudlian took charge of Charlton Athletic between November 2016 and March 2018, but, departed from The Valley by mutual consent after winning just 27 of his 74 matches in charge.

Robinson was in charge of Oxford between March 2018 and February 2023, managing The U’s 274 times, winning 110 of these matches.

Nathan Jones Odds: 18/1

Nathan Jones is still on the lookout for a new job following his bizarre spell at Southampton in the 2022/23 season.

The Welshman’s coaching career began at Brighton in 2013, serving as an assistant manager to the likes of Oscar Garcia, Sami Hyypia and Chris Hughton.

As a manager, Jones’ main success was with Luton Town, having earned promotion from League Two with the Hatters in 2016/17 via a second-place finish. The 50-year-old also laid down the foundations for Luton in 2018/19, leaving them second in League One in January before taking the Stoke City job where he won just six of his 38 games in charge.

Jones made a shock return to Luton and turned their Championship fortunes on their head, having helped them survive from what looked like an impossible situation towards the end of 2019/20 season, before overseeing their qualification for the play-offs last season.

Having shown his capabilities with a Luton Town side that were on restricted budgets, could Jones be a good fit for Rotherham?

Neil Warnock Odds: 25/1

Another ex-Millers manager in the shape of Neil Warnock has been linked with a sensational return to Rotherham.

The 74-year-old coached United between February 2016 and June 2016 and won six and drew six of his 16 matches in charge, saving the club from relegation to League One in that campaign, however, his contract wasn’t renewed for the 2016/17 season.

Warnock’s most recent spell as manager came while in charge of Huddersfield from 16th February 2022 to September 2023, with the ex-Sheffield United coach taking over when they were almost certainties to be relegated and at one stage being seven points adrift of safety at one point in March. During his time at the John Smith’s Stadium, Warnock managed to achieve an 18th-placed finish, resulting in Huddersfield finishing nine points above the drop zone.

Perhaps Warnock’s recent successes with Huddersfield could attract Rotherham to employ the 74-year-old once again. Despite his recent roles of aiding sides chances of survival, Warnock has managed to achieve a total of eight promotions across his managerial career, with his most recent one being against all odds with Cardiff City in 2017/18 as the Bluebirds finished as runners-up in the Championship.
