Mick McCarthy quit the Ipswich job in typically blunt Mick McCarthy fashion last night.
The English manager has been in charge of the Portman Road side since November 2012, taking charge of 279 games without getting promotion from the Championship in that time.
He was brought in to help keep Ipswich in the division and that’s exactly what he did before building the squad to compete in later years.
But McCarthy’s project at Ipswich has come to a sour end after he decided to leave the club earlier than the end of season date communicated by the club earlier this month.
And the opinionated Englishman couldn’t wait until calming down after Ipswich’s 1-0 win over Barnsley last night and decided to inform everyone mid-press conference, according to East Anglian Daily Times chief football writer Stuart Watson:
BREAKING: Mick McCarthy has quit #itfc
– Speaks for 3mins about game then says on reaction to Cotter sub:
'That was disgraceful reaction but listen I won't have to listen to it again because that's my last game, I'm out of here'.
Bangs desk with hands and marches out press room

Unfortunately, we can’t seem to locate a video for that, but we can just how imagine how blunt McCarthy was in delivering the news.
Now Ipswich will be led by caretaker manager Bryan Klug for the remainder of the campaign.
