Simon Grayson: 29 June 2017 - 31 October 2017
On 29 June 2017, Simon Grayson was named as the new Sunderland manager.
His first game ended 1-1 at the Stadium of Light against Derby County, with the former Preston North End boss picking up his first league win at Carrow Road one week later.
However, the former Preston man wouldn't record another league win during his time on Wearside, and he was dismissed in late October after just 18 games in charge.
Grayson ended the 2017-18 season at Bradford City.
