Coyle replaces Martinez at Wigan

Former Burnley manager Owen Coyle was appointed Wigan manager yesterday, replacing Roberto Martinez who himself replaced David Moyes recently at Everton.

Coyle, who has been out of work since getting the sack at Bolton last October won over Dave Whelan because of his enthusiasm and his knowledge of the club, and he pipped former England boss Steve McClaren for the job.

With Manuel Pellegrini having been confirmed as the new Man City boss earlier in the day it completes the managerial line up for the start of the 2013/14 season with the possible exception of Brighton where Gus Poyet remains suspended.

It's a line up that will, almost inevitably, change very quickly once the season gets underway and one that has already seen Sean Dyche, appointed on 30th October last year, reach 52nd place in terms of long service and where he is now in the top half of longest serving Championship managers.
