Chris Coleman: 19 November 2017 - 29 April 2018
On 19 November 2017, Chris Coleman replaced Simon Grayson at the helm.
The appointment marked the Welshman’s return to club management following a memorable stint with Wales that included reaching the semi-final stage at Euro 2016.
Coleman was tasked with guiding Sunderland up the Sky Bet Championship table, but he was unable to steer the Lads to safety as they were relegated to the third tier following a 2-1 defeat to Burton Albion.
The Welshman left the club on 29 April 2018.
