Hibs vacancy could interest Black

Birmingham City assistant Eric Black could be a candidate to succeed the departed Tony Mowbray as Hibernian manager, BBC Sport understands.

Black previously was manager at Motherwell and Coventry City.

And it is believed that he was considered for the Easter Road job before Mowbray was appointed in 2004.

It is understood that chairman Rod Petrie has already spoken to former Hibs midfielder John Collins and present caretaker Mark Proctor.

That pair appear to be the front-runners at present.

But Petrie is likely to interview other possible candidates before a decision is made.

Mixu Paatelainen, who quit as Cowdenbeath manager on Saturday, and Falkirk head coach John Hughes are other former Hibs players who have been linked to the job.

Former Dundee United and St Johnstone boss Paul Sturrock, this week sacked by Sheffield Wednesday, has expressed his interest.

And Nigel Worthington, axed this month by Norwich City, and Nottingham Forest first-team coach Ian McParland have also both been linked with the Hibs vacancy.
