Strachan leaves Coventry
Strachan leaves Sky Blues
Coventry manager Gordon Strachan has left the club by mutual consent following the Sky Blues' poor start to life in the First Division.
The 44-year-old had been at Highfield Road for five years but oversaw the club's relegation from the top-flight for the first time in 34 years.
Coventry chairman Bryan Richardson said: "I wish to place on record our sincere thanks and appreciation for Gordon's efforts on our behalf both as a player and as manager.
"For two years he almost single-handedly kept Coventry in the Premiership. As a manager he gave 100% effort every day for this club.
"We all wish Gordon huge success in the future and thank him for his refreshing honesty, humour and sheer guts.
"We'd also like to place on record our thanks to Garry Pendrey and Jim Blyth who are also leaving the club at this time. We wish them both a successful future in the game."
