Burnley first-team coach Stuart Gray and development/reserve-team coach Ashley Hoskin are to leave the club as part of a management restructure.

Gray, who has previously managed Southampton and Northampton, joined Burnley in January 2010.

Following the departure of Brian Laws last December, he enjoyed a successful spell as caretaker-manager, guiding the Clarets to two wins and a draw in four league and cup games in January. Hoskin, 43, was appointed at the start of the 2010/11 season.


A joint role saw the former Burnley winger work with the club's development squad, in addition to steering the reserve side to runners-up in the league.

Former Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has been at Turf Moor since January, but could not lead the club to a play-off berth this term with the Clarets finishing eighth in the npower Championship.
