28 September 2015

Rotherham United have parted company with manager Steve Evans and his assistant Paul Raynor.

The pair leave the Millers sitting 20th in the Sky Bet Championship, though they have won their last two games including last time out against Birmingham City.

First-team coach Eric Black has been placed in temporary charge.

A statement on the club's official website read: “Following a meeting between the chairman and manager this morning it was decided Rotherham United Football Club would part company with first team manager Steve Evans and his assistant Paul Raynor.

“During the said meeting it became clear that both parties at the present time wished to head in a different direction. The meeting was at all times positive, constructive and straightforward. It was clear that the chairman and the management team only wanted what they felt was best for Rotherham United Football Club.

“The club would like to place on record our thanks to Steve and Paul for their huge contribution over the last three and a half years, it has been simply an incredible journey.”

Evans, who led Rotherham for over three years, becomes the second managerial change in the Sky Bet Championship on Monday, following the earlier announcement of Marinus Dijkhuizen being replaced by Lee Carsley at Brentford.
