Millen out at Bristol City

Keith Millen has left his post as manager of Bristol City following Saturday's 5-0 defeat at Blackpool.
Millen took the post at Ashton Gate just over a year ago following the shock departure of Steve Coppell. They had a decent enough season, finishing in 15th place with 60 points and there were hopes of progress this season.
That hasnt' materialised. It was evident last week that his position was hardly secure and so it did not come as a surprise, following the heavy defeat at Bloomfield Road, when the announcement came this morning.
He was appointed assistant manager by Brian Tinnion, a role in which he continued under Gary Johnson after ruling himself out for the manager's job, but accepted the job following the departure of Coppell after a second spell as caretaker.
