Blackpool to Hire Stephen Dobbie as Full-Time Manager Despite Relegation


Stephen Dobbie is in the running for the permanent Blackpool manager position, as his friend and colleague Ciaran Donnelly is being lined up for a key role at the club. Dobbie has been in charge on a caretaker basis since Mick McCarthy resigned earlier this month. Despite failing to steer the Seasiders away from the relegation zone, Dobbie may still be given the nod for next season. The club plans to interview around six candidates for the job, with Donnelly, who works closely with Dobbie in the academy, involved in the selection process. Blackpool were relegated to League One after losing 3-2 to Millwall on Friday night. Under McCarthy, the team had struggled, winning only one of their last eight games before he quit. However, Dobbie has improved results since taking over, winning two of the five matches he has overseen. The 40-year-old is a former Blackpool player and a club hero, having made 56 appearances for them during his career. Prior to his appointment as interim boss, he worked as the lead development coach for young players. The club has also been linked with former gaffer Neil Critchley and Graham Alexander for the position. Blackpool’s final game of the season is away at Norwich, but their relegation fate has already been sealed.
