Owen Coyle: Blackburn boss leaves club by mutual consent

Owen Coyle won 11 of his 37 games in charge of Blackburn, suffering 18 defeats

Blackburn Rovers manager Owen Coyle has left the Championship side by mutual consent after eight months in charge.

The 50year-old took over at Rovers in June 2016, but won just 11 of 37 games.

Blackburn are 23rd in the table, three points from safety, in a season which has also been marred by fan protests against the club’s owners, Venky’s.

“The decision has been taken to give the club the best possible chance of climbing to a position of safety in the Championship,” said a club statement.
