Just a week after being appointed West Brom’s joint-assistant manager, Paul Jewell has left his post at the club, reports BBC
Former Queens Park Rangers and Tottenham manager Gerry Francis has recently joined the backroom staff as Jewell leaves, and West Brom left this statement about Jewell, saying that the former Derby County boss “decided that he will not be continuing his recent assistance on a more formal basis.”
New West Brom manager Tony Pulis hasn’t made an official statement about Jewell’s departure, but did speak of Francis, suggesting that his appointment had little bearing on the exit of the 50-year-old. West Brom have started the Pulis reign well too, picking up four points in two league games, as well as enjoying a 7-0 thrashing of Gateshead in the FA Cup.
