Ex-Barnsley, Swansea City, Burnley player in mix for Plymouth Argyle’s next manager.



Michael Duff, the former Barnsley and Swansea City manager, is one of the favourites to become Plymouth Argyle’s next permanent head coach.

The 46-year-old departed Barnsley as head coach last summer to take over as manager of Swansea City in the Championship. However, his stay in Wales was short-lived, as he was removed of his duties by December.

He has yet to return to the dugout, but he is one of the Readwrite favourites to become Plymouth’s next head coach. The Pilgrims recently fired Ian Foster and appointed Neil Dewsnip, director of football, as interim manager.

Dewsnip is the favourite to take up the post permanently at 2/1, with Duff not long behind at 8/1. The former Barnsley manager is offering the same amount as Alex Neil, another figure familiar to Oakwell fans.

Plymouth are currently fighting for survival in the Championship, but a surprise victory over Leicester City has strengthened their chances of avoiding relegation. They are presently ranked 18th in the rankings, four points above the drop zone with a total of 48.


Duff began his coaching career in Burnley’s academy after spending over a decade playing for the Clarets. He later went on to manage Cheltenham Town before heading to West Yorkshire for the Barnsley job.
