DERBY, England (AP) - Nigel Pearson has been hired as the manager of second-tier English club Derby for his first job since being fired by Leicester during the last offseason.

Pearson’s reputation has remained high after laying the foundations for Leicester’s title-winning season in the Premier League this season.

He has signed a three-year deal as the permanent successor to Paul Clement, who was fired in February.

Also in the League Championship on Friday, Reading fired Brian McDermott after the team’s 17th-place finish this season. It was his second spell in charge at Reading.
