With Darrell Clarke departing his role as Manager of Bristol Rovers FC, Graham Coughlan will take temporary charge of the team commencing with the game at Sunderland on Saturday.
Coaches Chris Hargreaves and Brian Dutton will also provide their support to the first team.
Assistant Manager Marcus Stewart has asked to be released from his contract and the club have reluctantly agreed, therefore he leaves by mutual consent.
The club would like to extend its thanks to Marcus for his service and wish him all the best for the future.
The Board is expecting substantial interest in the vacant Manager’s role and an appointment will be made as soon as practicable.
