Huddersfield appoints Mark Fotheringham as their new head coach

Placed 23rd in the Championship table, the Huddersfield board tries to turn things around by replacing their out-of-favor boss Danny Schofield with Fotheringham.

After serving as assistant coach of

Felix Magath

at Hertha Berlin, the 38-year-old took the next big step in his coaching career by accepting the relegation-dangered Championship side,

Huddersfield Town


The club's

official statement

reads: "

We're delighted to welcome Mark Fotheringham to Huddersfield Town as our new head coach.

"The 38-year-old Scotsman has been identified as the right man to lead the first team after a thorough recruitment process.


The Terriers confirmed that the former Celtic, Dundee, and Norwich City player has signed a deal that will run until the summer of 2025 at the John Smith's Stadium. He will replace

Danny Schofield

at the dugout, who got in charge after the sudden departure of

Carlos Corberan

in less than a month before the start of the new EFL Championship campaign.

"His contract, which runs until June 2025, was finalised on Wednesday morning, but he had already started his work at Town by taking training for the first time on Tuesday afternoon as preparations continue for Saturday's Sky Bet Championship game at Reading.

"Fotheringham has significant experience in coaching in the top levels of German football, most recently guiding Hertha Berlin to Bundesliga survival during the second half of 2021/22 as assistant coach to legendary German manager Felix Magath.

"Previously Mark, who is currently working towards his UEFA Pro License, helped FC Ingolstadt 04 gain promotion to 2. Bundesliga and coached in the German second tier with Karlsruher SC, adding to two years coaching in Scottish football with Cowdenbeath."
