Bobby Brown played for us , managed St. Johnstone and managed Scotland.
Probably lots but hard to remember others !

Jock Wallace was my first thought, can’t really think of many more bar Zoff as mentioned. Nuno Espírito Santo ex Wolves?

Just remembered Shilton, he managed Plymouth Argyle at one point.
On the subject of England keepers, Gordon Banks also had a stint as manager of non league Telford United; but reportedly left after a short time due to the abuse managers took.... further back, Birmingham and England keeper Gil Merrick had a few seasons in charge at St. Andrew`s.

Never forgotten these 1970 World Cup goalies who went on to become managers -

Felix (Brazil)
Mazurkiewicz (Uruguay)

Roy Carroll - one of our own, of course. 100% record.

"Carroll has also had a one-game managerial career, leading Barnet to a 2–1 victory in the 2011 Herts Senior Cup final against Stevenage. Therefore, Carroll holds the unusual honour of having won a trophy in his only game as a manager."

Farm managed Dunfermline to a Scottish Cup Final win in 1968.

Took them to the CWC semi the next season. Lost to Slovan Bratislava who beat Barcelona in the Final.

Dunfermline knocked WBA out of that CWC.

Good manager.
