West Brom will start their search for head coach Roy Hodgson's successor with chairman Jeremy Peace admitting he will be "a hard act to follow".
Hodgson has ended his 15-month spell in charge at the Hawthorns to become England's new head coach. The 64-year-old will remain in charge of the Baggies for the final two Barclays Premier League matches of the campaign, and Peace has already turned his attention to finding a replacement.
Peace said: "The board will now concentrate on the important task of appointing a new head coach to continue our project as we prepare for a third successive season in the Barclays Premier League. We did not want Roy to leave and he will be a tough act to follow."
