Evans leaves the Millers after three years of success. Whatever the reasons, it's a sad day for the club. He lived away from his family and no man could have given more to the role.

August 2015

Rotherham are at the foot of the Championship table and the natives are growing restless after a poor performance and a 3-1 defeat at home to Fulham. It doesn't help that old boy Ben Pringle takes less than seven minutes to score against his former club.

April 2014

Defeat at Sheffield United ends a 15-match unbeaten run during the League One promotion season. The Blades score a last-minute penalty as the Millers produce one of their worst displays of Evans' reign.

Evans record:

Played 172

Won 71

Drew 45

Lost 56
