Owen Coyle faced fierce criticism after resigning as Ross County manager yesterday, however, his son Owen Coyle Junior has since defended the decision on Twitter.
Coyle replaced Jim McIntrye in September last year and started his tenure in emphatic fashion with a 2-0 win over Kilmarnock.
However, the former Burnley boss has struggled since the beginning of 2018, with County having picked up just one win in their last seven… as they sit rooted to the bottom of the Scottish Premiership.
And while Coyle has been criticised for deciding to walk with only three months of the season left to play, his son insists “the public don’t know what happens behind the scenes.”
Junior, who is the head coach for England’s amputee football team, was clearly frustrated after seeing ex-Hull City midfielder-turned-boxer Curtis Woodhouse criticise his father on Twitter:
It’s unclear where County go from here, with only a handful of games left to save the club from relegation to the Championship.
Do they have enough quality to turn things around under a new coach, or is the writing on the wall following Coyle’s departure?
