Owen Coyle is back in football, after being unveiled as the new manager of MLS side Houston Dynamo.

Coyle, who was in charge at Bolton between 2010 and 2013, has been out of the game since losing his job as Wigan Athletic manager last year and recently stated that he was waiting for the right opportunity to arise before stepping back into management.

The 48-year-old flew out to the United States last week to hold talks with Dynamo president Chris Canetti, who was charged with finding a successor to long-serving boss Dominic Kinnear.

A former Republic of Ireland international, Coyle, who scored 23 goals in 78 appearances during a playing spell with Wanderers in the 1990s, is a known admirer of MLS and is no stranger to his new club - having taken Stuart Holden to England in 2010, as well as signing Tim Ream from New York Red Bulls two years later.

The length and terms of Coyle's deal have not been disclosed, although he faces a wait to take charge of his first game - with the new season not set to start until March.
