Mark Robins has now left Barnsley - click here for the latest next Barnsley manager odds.
Barnsley manager Mark Robins is set to become the second Championship manager to lose his job in the aftermath of the 2010/11 season after being informed by the South Yorkshire club that he is now serving a 12-month notice period under the terms of his contract. It is understood that this decision has been made following a disagreement between Robins and the Barnsley owner Patrick Cryne, with the pair reportedly clashing over next season's transfer budget and the overall running of the club.
Robins took charge of Barnsley in September 2009 when the club were rock-bottom of the Championship, and with limited finances available he managed to save them from relegation to League One. This season, in his first full season in charge at Oakwell, he may not have set the league alight with a 17th place finish but it was however still the Tykes highest finish for five years. Before joining Barnsley Robins was assistant manager at Rotherham before making the step up and becoming manager in 2007 after Alan Knill was sacked.
