Who Will Be The Next Wycombe Wanderers Manager

When it was mooted that Gareth Ainsworth was leaving the bookies created a next Wycombe Wanderers Manager betting market. As you can see below it had some "biggish" names on it. These managers may be worth keeping in mind when future managerial changes are in the pipeline. 

Steve Cotterill

Steve Cotterill built his managerial reputation at Cheltenham Town, guiding the club from the Southern League into the Conference and then the Football League proper. His best period when it came to games won was at cash-strapped Notts County, where he took over in February 2010 and saw the club crowned Champions in April 2010. In total, Cotterill has managed ten clubs

Danny Cowley

After impressing at Lincoln City, where his side won the National League, League 2 and the EFL Trophy in three seasons, Cowley has not fared as well in his subsequent roles at Huddersfield and Portsmouth. He has been out of day-to-day management of a club since the end of January 2023. 

Lee Bowyer

He spent three years at Charlton, the club he had starred for as a player and secured promotion to the Championship in 2019 under his tenure. Unfortunately, the club only lasted one season in the higher tier, and they were relegated back down to League One. Bowyer left the club in March 2021. He moved to Birmingham City, but the results could have been better, and with the club seemingly going nowhere and with no definable style, he was sacked in July 2022. 

Grant McCann

The Northern Irishman is synonymous with Peterborough United, where he has spent nearly ten years as a player and a manager. Posh was his last appointment, and despite the team sitting in eighth position in League 1, he was sacked in January 2023. 

Dean Smith

The former Aston Villa and Norwich City boss had been talked about as a future England manager, but his star has fallen since being sacked by those two clubs. He was given plenty of time to produce teams that could compete for honours but fell short, especially at Norwich, where EPL expectations were very high. He also had a brief and unsuccessful period at Leicester City trying to keep the Foxes in the EPL (PL 8 W2 D3 L3).
