Two manager exits and no news from Coventry Cityby Mick Bates / 11 May 2015, 11:44Tweet
Over the weekend, we witnessed the exit of two managers from the Football League, Blackpool boss Lee Clark departed Bloomfield Road following the Seasiders relegation from the Championship to League One, as we reported over the weekend and another relegated side also said goodbye to their manager as John Gregory officially ended his tenure with League Two bound Crawley Town.
The manager has been absent from the club for six months whilst he recovered from heart surgery. Dean Saunders has been in charge of the club on an interim basis following Gregory's need to leave for recovery but failed to save the club from relegation despite a valiant effort in the last game of the season against Coventry City.
Saunders position with the Sussex club has yet to be decided, his contract with the club ended on the last day of the season. This was the third time that Saunders had suffered relegation as manager, having seen Wolves relegated in 2013 and Doncaster in 2012.
Crawley's end of season opponents are also yet to conclude negotiations with their manager Tony Mowbray.
The former Boro and Ipswich boss has been in talks with the owners of Coventry City over the weekend, but these will now continue later on this week with an announcement expected early next week. Mowbray who is now a free agent has gone on record saying that he will only re-sign with the League One club if he can is given complete control of the football and recruitment departments, part of which will mean bringing in the backroom staff, long term assistant Mark Venus and Coach Mark Proctor.
