West Brom Fires Steve Bruce With Club In Championship Bottom Three
West Brom Sack Steve Bruce with the team in last place in the championship.
Following just one victory in West Brom’s first 13 Championship games of this season, Steve Bruce has been fired as the team’s head coach.
Bruce departs The Hawthorns after just eight months in charge following Saturday’s 0-0 draw at home to Luton. With Hull City currently in the relegation zone, his only league victory this year came against them at home in August.
The backroom staff members Steve Agnew, Stephen Clemence, and Alex Bruce have also left The Hawthorns.
Richard Beale, the U21s coach, has been named temporary manager. James Morrison and Gary Walsh will be his assistants. The next league match will be played on Saturday at Reading.
According to West Brom, the process to find a replacement is currently underway, and an appointment will be confirmed when the time is right.

After the game, Bruce asserted that both players had injuries before thanking the fans and expressing his intention to continue to fight for his position.
He stated: “I fully understand your frustrations. The path ahead will not be easy, whether I or someone else is in control.
