Mick McCarthy signed a three-year contract to become the new manager of Ipswich Town back in November 2012. McCarthy emerged as the hot favourite in the betting and after his appointed managed to transform the club's fortunes by steering them clear of the relegation zone and leading them to a respectable 14th place finish.
Jewell left the club by mutual consent following a third consecutive defeat, which left The Tractor Boys struggling at the bottom of the Championship and without a win in 10 matches.
The Tractor Boys experienced play-off heartache in 2004 and 2005 and haven't managed to finish in the top 6 since. Jewell, who replaced the sacked Roy Keane at the start of 2011, is the club's fourth manager since 2006 andlast season he came close to losing his job after a wobbly start.
Ipswich famously qualified for the UEFA Cup in 2001 after a fantastic season in which they finished fifth in the Premier League. However, those days now seem a long time ago, with the club failing to mount a decent push for promotion since 2008.
