Danny and brother Nicky were heavily linked with the Owls this month but they've made the switch to West Yorkshire instead.
The Owls were heavily linked with the 40-year-old over the past fortnight as they sought a replacement for Steve Bruce, who had left for Newcastle United in the summer.
Last week, Cowley responded to links with Wednesday by saying "that’s news to me", while confirming that there had been talks with Huddersfield, though he decided "it wasn't the right time" for that move (Lincolnshire Live).
Wednesday went on to appoint Garry Monk to the Hillsborough hotseat and, on Monday, the Terriers confirmed that Cowley and his brother Nicky had made the move to the John Smith's Stadium from Lincoln City after all (official website).
Here is what some Owls fans said on social media after the Cowleys move to West Yorkshire was confirmed:
I’m happy with our manager, Cowley is a good manager and a good guy also, hope he does well....— Alex (@swfcAJ) 9 September 2019
Just to clarify...— Wes Key (@wesleykey) 9 September 2019
I meant the Cowley's became irrelevant to #swfc and it's fanbase.
Not irrelevant to the football world.
I've massive respect for the job they did at Lincoln and would've been happy for them to have come to Hillsborough.
But it didn't happen, so we move on.
Limbs when Garry Monk lamps Danny Cowley on Sunday when we score a 90+4 winner #swfc— Harry (@HarryMiddletonn) 9 September 2019
Get ready for Cowley being the new alex ferguson its the Wednesday way #swfc— Andrew Burton (@burtbox) 9 September 2019
I'm guessing by you not even knowing what the guy is called that you also didn't know he'd previously turned Huddersfield down as it wasn't the right job for them. SWFC then appoint Monk instead so Cowley goes back to Huddersfield saying "fine, spose I'll do it then".— MGMarra (@MG_Marra) 9 September 2019
Hopefully not that well. But it would be so Wednesday for them to start ripping the league a new one.— Kat (@kmowl44) 9 September 2019
Looks like Cowley was holding out for the swfc job but never got it and therefore u turned on initial Huddersfield rejection. Monk or cowley #swfc fans?— Cal (@alexcallery) 9 September 2019
The new managers of their respective sides will lock horns on Sunday when Huddersfield host Wednesday at the John Smith's Stadium.
The Owls are currently 11th in the Championship table, while the Terriers are second from bottom.
