Robins previously managed the club between 2012 and 2013 before being contracted by Huddersfield Town.

With Coventry City at the bottom of the League One standings, Robins said: “My aim is to provide a change of fortune for this football club in the long-term, and build a team not only for now, but for the future of Coventry City.”

Coventry City will be playing Oxford at the final of the EFL Trophy in Wembley on 2 April, where Robins will be managing the team.

In October 2014, Robins was appointed Scunthorpe United’s manager, before being sacked on 18 January 2016. His position as manager of the Sky Blues will take effect immediately.
