Thread isn't about a coach nobody here has heard of in a sport anybody here really cares about getting paid $12 million to fuck off. It's more about American sport coaches getting fired from major, championship winning teams, why and how long it took for the owner(s) to fire them.

The media here in the UK are saying that because the previous Man Utd coach - Sir Alex Ferguson - was so successful over such a long period of time, that the new guy couldn't get out of his shadow and everything suffered as a result.

Does that remind anyone of any American teams in whatever sport?

Haha. Yeah, that occasionally happens here!

Are UK football coaches typically longer-tenured?

Well Moyes was signed on a six year contract which isn't uncommon. I think what is also uncommon is UK football teams firing their coaches after short periods of time.

Forgot to add, Irish Betting Company Paddy Power has been on Moyes case ever since he joined Manchester United. This was the scene at Moyes' last game in charge...

Six years is pretty long over here!

2.5 to 3 years is about the average across the four "major" sports over here.

Yeah I say that and now the EPL is suddenly known as the "Managerial Merry-Go-Round" as apparently everyone is getting fired or quitting for other clubs.

Sounds like the more pro the sport, the shorter the average life span of a coach/manager!
