2nd-tier Bolton fires manager Coyle
Bolton has fired manager Owen Coyle after the club’s poor start
to the second-tier League Championship following its relegation
from the Premier League.
Bolton is 18th in the 24-team standings with 11 points from 10
Bolton chairman Phil Gartside said Tuesday ”it is the right
time for a change.”
Coyle was praised for the way he supported Fabrice Muamba after
the midfielder suffered an on-field cardiac arrest during an FA Cup
match at Tottenham in March.
But his team’s 11-year stint in the country’s top division came
to an end and it has won just three matches this season.
