Dyche appointed Burnley boss
Burnley have confirmed Sean Dyche as their new manager on a two-and-a-half year contract at Turf Moor.
Dyche fills a vacancy created when Eddie Howe left the Championship club earlier this month to return to Bournemouth due to family reasons.
The 41-year-old has penned a two-and-a-half year contract on his first appointment since being controversially sacked as Watford manager this summer, following the Pozzo family's takeover at Vicarage Road.
Dyche led Watford to their highest Championship finish for four years in his first managerial appointment last term and returned to football as part of Stuart Pearce's England Under-21s coaching staff for September's Euro 2013 qualifier against Norway.
He is joined at Turf Moor by assistant Ian Woan, who also served as his number two at Watford, and first-team coach Tony Loughlan.
Having recorded back-to-back wins in their first two games under caretaker boss Terry Pashley, Burnley went down 4-0 to leaders Cardiff at the weekend and lie 14th in the table ahead of Saturday's clash with Wolves.
