BBC Sport - West Brom: Alan Irvine delighted to be new Baggies head coach

Irvine 'delighted' with West Brom job

New West Bromwich Albion head coach Alan Irvine says he is "absolutely delighted" to be given the chance to coach in the Premier League at The Hawthorns.

Irvine assisted David Moyes in the top flight at Everton but believes it was his "passion for coaching" that led him to go it alone as number one at Preston North End and then Sheffield Wednesday, before returning to Goodison as academy director.

The 55-year-old Scots's new-look Baggies will take on Sunderland in their first Premier League game on the weekend of 16 August.
