Andy Thorn is currently managerless after he was sacked by Coventry City Football Club just three league games into the new season. Thorn joined the Championship side as a chief scout befoe eventually becoming manager in 2011, following the departure of Aidy Boothroyd. He was unable to save the club from relegation from the Championship last season and he was axed on August 26th 2012 after the Sky Blues failed to win any of their opening three matches.
After a career that saw him make over 300 appearances was cut short through injury, Andy Thorn eventually became chief scout at Coventry City and eventually worked his way up at the Ricoh Arena.
Following the departure of Aidy Boothroyd, Thorn was drafted in to first team affairs and teamed up with Steve Harrison to work as a caretaker-manager. Having enjoyed a successful close to the season after only using a solitary game in his time as caretaker, Thorn was handed the position of manager at the very end of the season.
Able to have the whole Summer to organise his team for the 2011-2012, Thorn struggled to gain any momentum in his first season in charge with Coventry City lying in the lower echelons of the Championship table for the whole season. They were relegated in their second to last match after losing at home to Doncaster.
