Gary Rowett (born 6 March 1974 in Bromsgrove) is an English former professional footballer and manager of Burton Albion.

As a player he was a defender, notably playing in the Premier League for Everton, Derby County, Leicester City and Charlton Athletic. He also played in the Football League for Cambridge United, Blackpool, Birmingham City and Burton Albion. In May 2009 he was appointed assistant manager to Paul Peschisolido at Burton.

Playing career[edit]

He started his career at Cambridge United, a product of their youth system before earning a move to the Premiership with Everton in March 1994 for £200,000. After failing to break into the first team, Rowett went on loan to Blackpool before being sold to Derby County in part-exchange for Craig Short.[1] Rowett enjoyed a good three-year spell with Derby, and also played for Birmingham City, Leicester City and Charlton Athletic, where he scored once against Sunderland.[2] A persistent knee injury put an end to his career in the Football League, though he did play for Burton Albion before retiring.

Management career[edit]

In May 2009, Rowett was named as assistant to newly appointed manager Paul Peschisolido at Burton Albion.[3] Rowett was put in temporary charge of Burton, along with Kevin Poole, following Peschisolido's sacking on 17 March 2012.[4] On 10 May 2012, Gary Rowett was announced as the permanent replacement and become manager of Burton Albion.

Media career[edit]

Rowett reviewed Birmingham City matches with Tom Ross on radio station BRMB, and for the 2008–09 season, summarised matches involving Derby County for BBC Radio Derby.[5]
