After 13 years at Molineux, Wolves boss Stale Solbakken decided to give Terry Connor the elbow on Monday morning.
The decision was seen by many as inevitable and didn't surprise many fans once the news broke.
A new management team often comes in to a new club and brings their own ideas, their own methods on how to do things and usually their own back-room team to put in place for things to work well on the training pitch.
When a team employs a foreign coach, that back-room team is often more important. Sometimes, an older face is kept on to act as middle man, but that didn't appear to be the role that Connor was taking on and following Johan Lange being named as first-team coach, Connor's role was becoming more and more marginalised. Sitting on the bench with not a whole lot to do.
"It was obviously a very hard, very difficult decision to make, It was something in a way I tried to avoid.
"I gave it some time. I think it is very important to be dead honest.' the Wolves gaffer told the Birmingham Mail.
But whilst he found it a hard decision to make, the boss obviously stands by his decision and whilst he held nothing but praise for TC, predictably the new boss just wanted his own team around him going forward.
Solbakken added: "It was nothing to do with the person Terry Connor, nothing to do with his skills as a coach, nothing to do with his work.
"He has given one hundred per cent and has been one hundred per cent loyal. I have not a bad word to say about him, but I think that I can work better and more effective with another team around the team.
Vital Wolves Comment: Meanwhile, we still await the 'fuller tribute to Terry`s long-standing service to Wolves' on WOW which was promised to be paid in due course.
Unless the comments from Karl Henry and Matt Murray are all we are getting?
