THAT JUST HAPPENED PEOPLE. Garry Monk, formerly the head coach of Swansea City and once rumored to be in line for the England job, is the new head coach of Leeds United. Of Leeds United! It's a massive coup for Massimo Cellino, just days after letting Steve Evans know he would not be returning for the 2016/17 season.

We'll have more on Garry Monk in the days ahead, but you cannot be upset with this news. Monk brings instant credibility to a club that has been lacking it for far too long. Now we get to see how long he gets to stay in the job. Like others before him, he was signed to a 12-month deal.

More information as it comes available. For now, GARRY MONK. #MOT.
