David Hopkin led Livingston to back-to-back promotions from League One to the Scottish Premiership

Bradford City have appointed David Hopkin as their new head coach on a two-year deal after they sacked Michael Collins on Monday.

Collins, 32, was dismissed after six games with the club 17th in League One.

Hopkin recently managed Scottish Premiership side Livingston, helping them to two promotions before rejecting a contract extension in May.

“I am absolutely delighted to be joining the Bantams and cannot wait to get started,” said the 48-year-old.
