Wolves Sack Kenny Jackettby Jack Kitson / 30 July 2016, 00:18Tweet
First it was the turn of the Premier League (Hull City), then it was League One (Fleetwood Town), and now the Championship has become the latest tier in the last week to witness a managerial casualty in the build-up to the new season after Wolves sacked head coach Kenny Jackett.
Jackett's departure will surprise few considering that his future has been up in the air ever since Wolves were linked with a takeover.
The Molineux side were finally taken over by Chinese conglomerate Fosun International last week, which only fuelled speculation that it was only a matter of time before Jackett lost his job.
But, earlier this week Jackett then appeared to be safe from the sack, however this hasn't proved to be the case.
Jackett made an instant impact on arrival at Wolves, leading the Midlands club to the 2013/14 League One title. Back in the Championship the Black Country side came within a cats whisker of finishing in the play-offs, missing out on the final day, while they endured an inconsistent 2015/16 campaign, finishing in 14th.
Wolves were hotly linked with the former Porto boss Julen Lopetegui, however these rumours were brought to an end earlier this month after he was named the new manager of Spain.
