Cotterill agreed yesterday to leave the club by mutual consent following a bad spell of results with only one win in 10 matches and two consecutive home defeats against Southampton and on Tuesday night against Hull City.
"Let me first say that Steve Cotterill has all the capabilities to be a Premiership manager, the Chairman said opening the Press Conference today.
"However, what has happened in the last 10 games and the slide down the table, maybe the directors thought it was time for a change
"Steve was the longest serving manager in the division and sometimes you do need to take stock and start again
"Steve Davis will take charge of the team and we will be using the two weeks holiday to look at the opportunities open now to Burnley Football Club to bring in a new team."
"The Hull defeat was a defining moment I think. We still have ambitions to get into the top six of this division and I was very conscious that we were sliding down the table
"We have had draws that should have been wins, but after a chat with Steve maybe this new start is what the club needs."
The Press Conference is now up in full on the Official Site
Brendan Flood also last night revealed in the local press why he thought it was time for Steve Cotterill to depart.
'After a long chat with Steve (on Wednesday) about our recent lack of wins, we both decided it would be good to have a change,' said Flood.
'It's been a very amicable parting between the club and Steve.
'He has been a great ambassador for Burnley.
'Steve will be offered new opportunities and I'm sure the club can attract a quality manager soon.
'We are very positive about the future and want the very best for the club and its fans'
