Andy Thorn sacked by Coventry Cityby Jack Kitson / 26 August 2012, 14:38Tweet
Recently relegated Coventry City have today sacked manager Andy Thorn following a 2-2 draw with Bury in which the Sky Blues lost a two goal lead. This is the third time this season that Coventry have surrendered leads.
Coventry are just three games into their League One campaign and are so far unbeaten this season having drawn their league games and beating Dagenham & Redbridge in the Capital One Cup second round.
Thorn had been given little time to fine tune his team which has seen the arrival of nine new players but has also seen the departure of key players such as Richard Keogh, Martin Cranie and midfielder Gael Bigirimana who was snapped up by Newcastle in the close season for a deal rumoured to be worth around £1 million.
So far odds are not yet available on who will be the next Coventry City manager but names being touted are former Coventry player Richard Shaw who joined the side as Thorn's assistant earlier this year and Lee Carsley another former player who joined the backroom staff following the end of his playing career.
Thorn had been with the side for 17 months but failed to stop their relegation from the Championship to League One.
