Profile

Coventry City are on the hunt for a new manager following the departure of Tony Mowbray who had been with the club since March 2015. Caretaker boss Mark Venus has been placed in charge until January, and is also the red-hot favourite in the Next Coventry Manager Market - click on the odds below to palce your bets.

Mowbray was named as Steven Pressley's successor on a deal originally running until the end of the 2014/15 season. The experienced boss went on to save the Sky Blues from safety on the final day of the campaign. Mowbray's troops enjoyed a fine start to the 2015/16 season, but they fell short towards the end, missing out on the play-offs.

It's now remarkably been over 40 years since Coventry finished in the top-6 of any division, something Mowbray will be desperate to change.
