A Boro player between 1994 and 1998, Pearson has a Championship promotion on his CV with Leicester City in 2014.
Rowett was sacked by Stoke City in January after just eight months in-charge, however dont let that deter you from the promise he showed at Birmingham and Derby.
Recently sacked by Brighton, Hughton, having led Newcastle and the Seagulls to the Premier League, could be just the man for the Teessiders.
Things have gone a bit stale for Moyes since he left Everton for Manchester United in 2013, though an opportunity at a second-tier club could help boost his reputation.
The former England manager is often in the running for most managerial vacancies at the moment. He has a knack of keeping clubs in the top-flight but he once guided West Ham back to the Premier League.

One of Boros most successful managers before leaving to become England manager in 2006. They say you should never go back in football, but should he?

Bilics name has certainly did the rounds in multiple bookmakers next manager odds, so expect no different should Pulis depart.
