Manager of Coventry City, Andy Thorn, has been sacked by the club after a dismal start to the new season.
A statement released by the club says that Andy Thorn has ‘parted company’ with the team, following relegation last season and poor recent performances.
Assistant manager Richard Shaw and first team coach Lee Carsley will take temporary charge of team affairs, in hope of mounting a serious challenge for promotion.
Andy Thorn lead Sky Blues to a two-goal draw at home yesterday, yet finished the first-half two-goals up. Thorn described the team's performance in the second-half as 'unacceptable.'
Thorn, 45, replaced Aidy Boothroyd in April 2011 following a stint as caretaker.
The club will now begin their search for their 12th manager since relegation from the Premier League in 2000.
