STEVE Coppell has resigned as Bristol City manager with immediate effect after less than four months in the job.
Assistant manager Keith Millen has been handed the job on a three-year deal.
“It is with the deepest regret that I confirm my departure from Bristol City,” the 55-year-old told the official club website.
“It has become clear over recent weeks that I found I could not become passionate about the role and give the commitment the position demands.”
Coppell was appointed City’s manager back in April following the departure of Gary Johnson but did not take up the reins until the end of the season.
Coppell has overseen just two competitive matches – the opening day 3-0 defeat at home to Millwall and Tuesday’s 3-2 loss to Southend in the Carling Cup.
