The Welsh club announced on their official website on Tuesday evening that the American has parted company with the club following the 4-1 home defeat to fellow strugglers West Ham on Boxing Day.
He leaves the club in the relegation zone on 12 points from 18 games, having been in charge for only 85 days.

I was thinking Chris Coleman to Swansea and Giggs to Wales.
They usually have a replacement in mind before the sacking.
Anyone but Monk.
