Jack Ross says that during football’s shutdown, he’ll dabble with the idea of writing a book on his career and helping out coaches.

Currently Hibs manager, Ross has also managed Sunderland down south alongside spells with St Mirren as both a player and a manager.

Stories and lessons he’s learned could be set to go to print. Speaking to BT Sport, Ross says that pushing forward with the book may be one of the things he does with his time away from the everyday football routine.

“It allows me time to be creative in a coaching sense and come up with new ideas,” Ross said. “I am always trying to do that anyway.


“I play about with writing a book that might be related to different parts of my career but also potentially helping coaches and managers. So it allows me a little bit more time to do that.

“Like everybody, I’m just trying to maximise the time I’ve got just now and make best use of it. It’s not the worst to be stuck at home with your family, it could be a lot worse than that.”

An interesting proposition

This certainly would be an interesting read for fans of Ross’ former clubs. After a decent spell as a player, Ross has made his name as a manager too, taking St Mirren back to the Premiership.

That earned him a big move to Sunderland, where he was tasked with getting the English club with a huge backing up the football ladder again. That journey has also been documented in the Netflix documentary ‘Sunderland Till I Die,’ due for release on April 1.

Now manager at Hibs, one of Scottish football’s biggest clubs, Ross’ book would certainly be full of tales for fans and seemingly some tips for coaches too.
