Everton longest-serving manager is David Moyes. The Scott had a successful but trophy-less tenure at Goodison Park until Sir Alex Ferguson decided to make him his successor at Manchester United.
The job was too big for him and he failed terribly at Old Trafford. He has never recovered from that because he has so far failed at Real Sociedad, Sunderland, and West Ham United. However, nobody can take away 10 Manager of the Month awards he won during his great years with the Toffees.
