Football: Coyle leaves FA Cup holders Wigan after less than six months
(REUTERS) - Owen Coyle parted company with English FA Cup holders Wigan Athletic on Monday, less than six months after replacing Roberto Martinez as manager of the Championship football club.
The 47-year-old Scot was given the task of leading Wigan back to the Premier League after Spaniard Martinez joined Everton in the close season.
Wigan suffered a fourth defeat in five games on Sunday when they lost 1-3 at home to Derby County.
That defeat left them 14th in the table on 22 points, Coyle having led them to six wins in 16 league games.
