Sunderland Fire Manager Chris Coleman; Ellis Short Sells Club

Sunderland announced manager Chris Coleman had been released from his contract on Sunday, the same day owner Ellis Short agreed to sell the club to a consortium led by Stewart Donald.

The Black Cats announced Coleman’s departure before sharing a statement from Short detailing the sale to Donald, chairman of Eastleigh:

The north-east outfit were relegated from the Championship following a recent 2-1 defeat to Burton Albion, and fans will be hoping for an immediate promotion back to England’s second tier.

Sunderland’s drop to League One will see them play third-tier football for the first time since 1987-88, the only other campaign in their history they have played below the second division.
