Ex-Hull boss Brown prepared to start at the bottom

Former Hull City boss Phil Brown is not against getting back onto the management ladder in the lower tiers of football. Brown was relieved of his duties at the KC Stadium in March and was placed on gardening leave, with the club languishing in the basement of the Premier League standings.

The Tigers failed to avoid the drop under Brown's successor Iain Dowie and formally ended their tenure with Brown this week after agreeing an "amicable departure".

"I want an opportunity really. I'd like to get another football club whether it is in the second division through to the Premier League," said Brown.

"I do hope to get back in the Premier League. When you look at Premier League clubs at the moment West Ham have come and gone now, Avram Grant has a great chance there.

"The Liverpool's are beyond me because of the stature of the club.

"It would be nice to get hold of a Championship club again and emulate what we did at Hull. I think maybe that is my plan of attack, but I'm not ruling out the first and second division.

"There are some great clubs down there and I'm willing to interview for most jobs."
