Mark Robins has been confirmed as the new manager at Rotherham United today but there has been no assistant named.

The Chairman, at the press conference, was very reluctant to talk about the appointment, wanting the attention focused on the new manager and Mark Robins himself said, ‘We know who it is but we will have to wait and see what happens.’

Millers on every message board had been expecting ex Miller John Breckin to be named alongside Robins today and it is thought that he was at the press conference.

The chairman, Denis Coleman said, ‘We are in negotiations with a number two and I hope to be able to announce the name within seven days. We would have liked him to be sat here with us now but we are still talking to him. We think he will be the right person but, at the end of the day, Mark has to be happy to work with him. We will see how it pans out.’ He refused to say if the ‘mystery man’ had been interviewed for the managers post.
