Notts County manager Steve Cotterill has turned down the chance to take over as boss of Championship side Coventry City next season.
Cotterill was mulling over the offer from the Sky Blues this week having also received an improved offer from newly-promoted Notts County now in League 1.
He has just two weeks to run of his current contract at Meadow Lane and it looks like County chairman, Ray Trew has managed to convince Cotterill to stay following lengthy talks between the two of them.
It would appear he would prefer to stay at County but so far he has not revealed his reasons for rejecting Coventry's offer.
The former Burnley and Cheltenham boss made a spectacular return to football management at Notts County; his first managerial post since leaving the Clarets by mutual consent in November 2007.
Arriving in February 2010, he steered County to the top of the League 2 table with the club eventually being promoted to League 1 as Champions.
Cotterill was an instant success becoming the first County manager to win his first four games in charge. He also won the March 2010 Football League Two Manager of the Month award after achieving 6 wins and two draws from eight games that month.
In total he only lost one match in 18 league games, winning 14 and conceding just six goals over that period.
Following the sacking of manager, Chris Coleman at Coventry earlier this month, Steve Cotterill was the bookies immediate favourite to take over and it is perhaps surprising that he has not taken up the chance to return to the Championship after an absence of almost 30 months.
