Mark Robins has been confirmed as Scunthorpe's new manager.
The 44-year-old former Rotherham, Coventry and Barnsley boss has been out of work since leaving Huddersfield just one game into this season and succeeds Russ Wilcox, who was sacked last Wednesday.
Mark Robins takes charge of Scunthorpe United today.
The former Huddersfield, Rotherham and Barnsley man has taken over from Russ Wilcox who was sacked by the Iron after a poor start to the season.
Wilcox led the team to promotion last season after a record breaking unbeaten run, but left the club last week.
Scunthorpe have sacked manager Russ Wilcox following a poor run of results.
The Sky Bet League One side have lost six of their last seven matches in all competitions, culminating in a 2-1 home defeat to Notts County in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy on Tuesday night.
Wilcox, who took over last December following a spell as caretaker boss, led the Iron to promotion last season having finished runners-up to Chesterfield in League Two.
He also enjoyed a record-breaking 28-game unbeaten run for a manager's first spell in charge, surpassing a feat set 125 years ago.
However, he had come under increasing pressure in recent weeks with the club winning just two of their 11 league games to sit second-bottom.
