David Moyes is a Scottish professional football coach and former player who currently serves as the manager of West Ham United. During his playing career, he played primarily as a centre-back and represented several clubs including Celtic, Cambridge United, Bristol City, Shrewsbury Town, Dunfermline Athletic and Preston North End.

By the time he left Preston for Everton, he had registered 113 wins, 58 draws and 63 losses from 234 matches and had became widely known for his team building skills. He had a successful stint as the manager of Everton, the position he served for more than a decade before moving to Manchester United as the successor to Sir Alex Ferguson. However, despite his attempts, the club performed poorly, resulting in him being sacked in just 10 months. During his later career, he has managed La Liga club Real Sociedad and the Premier League club Sunderland for short periods of time.
