Wigan turn down Coventry offer

Posted by

Sky Sports reports that Premiership strugglers Wigan Athletic have turned down Championship strugglers Coventry City’s offer to sign their assistant manager Eric Black. Coventry are threatened with relegation from the Championship this season and sacked Iain Dowe earlier this week and approached Wigan for Black as a possible replacement for the former Charlton Athletic manager in a managerial role.

Black says:

I was aware of Coventry’s interest but I’m more than happy with the job I’m doing with Steve (Bruce). One day I might want to return to management – I don’t know if that will happen – but there’s a big challenge here first.

So where does the Coventry board go now in search of a new manager?
