West Brom appoint Corberan as new head coach

West Brom have appointed former Huddersfield and Olympiakos boss Carlos Corberan as their new head coach on a two-and-a-half-year deal.

The Spaniard replaces Steve Bruce, who was sacked earlier this month with the Baggies languishing near the bottom of the Championship.

Corberan spent two years at Huddersfield before leaving in July and led the Terriers to the Championship play-off final last season, where they were beaten by Nottingham Forest.

The 39-year-old had a short spell with Greek side Olympiakos after leaving the John Smith's Stadium but left in September, just seven weeks after joining the club.

Corberan will take West Brom training on Wednesday. The club say the make up of his backroom staff is yet to be finalised, but it will include current staff members James Morrison and Gary Walsh.

Ron Gourlay, West Brom's chief executive, said: "Carlos is a coach of the highest quality and I am delighted to welcome him to the club.

Carlos was in our thoughts from the very beginning of the recruitment process and our admiration of his qualities only grew on meeting him.
