West Bromwich Albion club statement

Albion have tonight parted company with the Club’s Head Coach Darren Moore.

Assistants Graeme Jones and Wayne Jacobs have also been relieved of their duties.
The Club took the decision after a disappointing run of results which has seen Albion lose ground in the challenge for automatic promotion from the Sky Bet Championship.
Albion have won just four of their last 12 league games and suffered defeats by fellow promotion contenders. 
Chief Executive Mark Jenkins said: “This has been an enormously difficult decision for a Club which will always hold Darren in such high regard.
“He took over at a very difficult time last season and reunited the Club, a contribution that will never be forgotten.
“But we have made it clear from the outset that everything this season was geared to making as swift a return to the Premier League as possible. 
“Unfortunately Darren has not been able to engineer the consistency of form and results to convince the board that this objective would be met.
“After discussions with our owners, the difficult decision to make a change was taken. Darren’s dedication over the last 12 months is not underestimated and there will always be a welcome for him at The Hawthorns.
“But we have to place the Club’s best interests at the forefront of our thinking and we must do everything we can to try to deliver the promotion we have targeted." 
Albion’s first-team coach James Shan has been placed in charge of first-team affairs in the interim but the Club hope to be able to name a new Head Coach as soon as possible.
