– Peter Pannu, Birmingham City Acting Chairman
"We'd like to thank Chris and his team for their efforts over the last 12 months and they leave with our best wishes.
"Chris is a great man and a proven manager and we didn't want to stand in his way when Norwich made an approach with the offer of a top flight managerial position.
"We will now actively seek a new coaching team to build on the good work done during the 2011/12 season."
