25 Aug 2012 COVENTRY PART WITH THORN
Coventry City have parted company with manager Andy Thorn.
Assistant manager Richard Shaw and first team coach Lee Carsley will take temporary charge of team affairs.
Chief executive Tim Fisher said on the club website: “We have not taken this decision lightly. We recognised that last season there were off-the-field matters that affected team affairs and felt it was right and proper to give Andy the chance to put that right over the course of the summer and the start of the season.
“We do not feel that has happened. Of course, the fact that we have surrendered the lead in the first three league games has not helped but there are several other factors in this decision – not just three disappointing results.
“Richard and Lee will take charge of first team affairs and we feel that will give us time to ensure we appoint a manager to help us mount a serious challenge for promotion.
“We would like to put on record our thanks to Andy for his work in current and previous roles at the club.”
