Coyle leaves Blackburn Rovers

Owen Coyle has left Blackburn Rovers by mutual consent after eight months in charge.

Coyle took over at the Championship side in June 2016 and has won only 11 of his 37 games as manager of the club.

Blackburn currently sit 23rd in the Championship, three points from safety, in a season which has also been blighted by fan protests against the Venky's.

Assistant manager Sandy Stewart, first-team coach John Henry and goalkeeping coach Phil Hughes have also left Ewood Park.

The club have said that the search for new manager will begin with "immediate effect".
