Steve Bruce has managed Hull City A.F.C. since June 2012.

Hull City A.F.C. is a professional football club based in Kingston upon Hull in the East Riding of Yorkshire. The club was founded in 1904 and was initially managed by James Ramster who only took charge of the team for friendly matches. Ambrose Langley, a former Sheffield Wednesday player managed Hull for over 300 games from 1905 to 1913. Harry Chapman, Fred Stringer, David Menzies and Percy Lewis held short tenures as manager before Billy McCracken led the club from 1923 to 1931, overseeing 375 matches. Haydn Green took charge for almost three seasons, leaving the club in 1934 with a win percentage just shy of 50%.

Raich Carter became the next Hull City manager to lead the club for over 100 competitive matches, holding the tenure from March 1948 to September 1951. Five managers, Bob Jackson, Bob Brocklebank, Cliff Britton, Terry Neill and John Kaye, then led the club over the next 25 years. Mike Smith and Brian Horton also managed the club for over 100 games, while Terry Dolan took charge for over 300 matches in the 1990s. Dane Jan Mølby became the first and only manager from outside the United Kingdom when he took over in April 2002. His tenure was to be short-lived, he was replaced on a full-time basis after just 17 competitive matches in charge by Peter Taylor.

Phil Brown became the first Hull City manager to lead the club to the top division of English football in 2008 after winning the Football League Championship play-off Finals 1–0 against Bristol City at Wembley Stadium. Hull City player Nick Barmby took over, initially in a caretaker role, in November 2011, but was released from his duties the following May, to be replaced by Steve Bruce.
