Owls boss rules himself out of Coventry job

Published Add your comment

Alan Irvine has ruled himself out of the running for the vacant post at Coventry.

The Sheffield Wednesday manager was among the names heavily linked with the position as Sky Blues chairman Ray Ranson looks to find a replacement for Chris Coleman.

But Irvine insists he is not about to jump ship after the Owls` relegation to League One. "I got a surprise the other day when the chairman Lee Strafford told me I was 6/1 for the Coventry job," Irvine told BBC Radio Sheffield.

"I can assure people I'll not look for another job. I am not running away from the League One situation."

Former Celtic manager Tony Mowbray, who still owns a property in the area after his time at West Brom, is currently joint-favourite for the position along with Notts County boss Steve Cotterill.
