Former Exeter City and MK Dons manager Paul Tisdale is also in contention to become United’s next manager.
The 48-year-old is known for playing an attractive brand of football whilst developing young players which is something that Carlisle’s fans would desire to see, as well as results on the pitch.
Tisdale has three promotions to his name, having been the one to take Exeter to League One, via the Conference Premier playoffs in 2008, before finishing as runner-up in League Two the following year. The Malta-born manager also lead MK Dons to a third-place finish in League Two as recent as the 2018/19 season.
The most recent roles that Tisdale has had were at Bristol Rovers and Colchester United, with the initial being a disaster, as the Pirates earned just 12 points in 15 League One matches before he left, although he did play a crucial role in Colchester’s survival in the Football League, taking an advisory role alongside inexperienced manager Hayden Mullins.
Carlisle are priced at 5/1 to appoint Tisdale as their next manager.
