Philip "Phil" Brown (born 30 May 1959 in South Shields, Tyne and Wear, England) is an English former footballer, the current manager of Preston North End. As a player, Brown was a right-back who made over six hundred league appearances in an eighteen-year career, but never made it to the top flight. However, as a manager, he became the first to lead Hull City to the top division in their 104-year history, winning the Championship play-offs in 2008 after a 1-0 win against Bristol City at Wembley
