Steve Cotterill, so long in the football doldrums following his departure from Turf Moor in November 2007 has been setting the football world alight this season after leading Notts County to the League Two title.
Cotterill did not take up any managerial positions after leaving Burnley by mutual consent for over two years until he joined Notts County in February 2010. At the time they were in contention for a play-offs spot but after a remarkable run Cotterill was named March Football League Two Manager of the Month following 6 wins and 2 draws in the month which put them well on the way to automatic promotion.
Cotterill agreed a short-term contract with County until the summer so his future at the moment is uncertain.
His success though appears to have caught the eye of a number of clubs.
Shrewsbury Town manager Paul Simpson was sacked last month after their League Two play-off hopes were all but ended and there were media reports that they would try and tempt Cotterill to the Prostar Stadium but nothing seems to have come of that move if the rumours were true.
This week though Coventry City chairman Ray Ranson sacked manager Chris Coleman just over two years after appointing the Welshman. The Championship side finished the season in a disappointing 19th place after a run of 11 games without a win culminating in an embarrassing 4-0 tonking at home against Watford in their final game of the season.
Media reports today suggest the bookies are making Steve Cotterill 3/1 favourite to take over the job at the Ricoh Arena with former Leeds and Aston Villa manager, David O'Leary and current Doncaster manager, Sean O'Driscoll also in the frame.
With the Clarets now relegated and returning to the Championship we could be seeing our former gaffer return to Turf Moor next season in charge of the Sky Blues.
Coventry though would appear to be in no rush to make an appointment so it could be some time until we know if the rumour is true.
'We will not be rushed into finding a successor and the board will explore every avenue to appoint the right manager to take Coventry forward.'
