12 February 2020

Blackpool Football Club can announce that David Dunn has been placed in caretaker charge of the first-team.

The Seasiders’ First-Team Coach steps up to the role following the departure of Simon Grayson. The Club can also confirm that Assistant Manager Ian Miller has now left his position with The Seasiders.

Chief Executive Ben Mansford said:

“I would like to thank Simon Grayson and Ian Miller for all their hard work since I joined the Club. Simon is a proper football man and someone I enjoyed working alongside. Unfortunately, despite Simon’s best efforts, the results did not come over recent times. I wish Simon and Ian all the very best for the future.”

Owner Simon Sadler added:

“Given his past success here, Simon Grayson will always be a part of the Club’s history and I would like to wish both him and Ian Miller well for the future.

“While the process of appointing a new manager gets underway, I would like to thank David Dunn for agreeing to take charge in the interim.”
