Oxford United have begun their search for a new manager after Chris Wilder this morning took up the top job at fellow League Two side Northampton Town.
The Cobblers sit at the bottom of League Two, 23 points behind sixth place Oxford. Wilder, whose last game in charge was Saturday's one nil win over Torquay, has managed the U's since 2008 - winning promotion back to the Football League two years later. He says this move was a difficult decision.
Chairman Ian Lenagan has released this statement about the resignation of Oxford United Manager Chris Wilder:
Oxford United manager Chris Wilder has resigned.
He formally handed in his termination yesterday, which was accepted by the Board.
Assistant Manager, Mickey Lewis, has agreed to become Caretaker Manager and will be in charge when Oxford play Exeter City tomorrow night.
Oxford United manager Chris Wilder is denying claims that he has resigned.
The League Two club's owner said yesterday that he understood Wilder had decided to quit.
The 46-year-old was expected to be named as the new boss at Northampton Town. But he's released a statement saying he's still in charge.
