Former Ipswich Town manager Paul Hurst could be set for a return to football at freshly relegated Plymouth Argyle.
Hurst, who was sacked as Blues boss after just 15 games last October, hasn't managed a team since.
But the odds on him taking over at Plymouth, who were relegated to League Two over the weekend, have tumbled from 18/1 to 4/1 with Sky Bet.
The 44-year-old is now the third favourite for the top job at Home Park, behind Bristol Rovers boss Graham Coughlan and well-travelled veteran Ian Holloway.
The shift in odds came after Argyle chairman Simon Hallett gave an interview in which he said the club wanted to appoint a 'modern, forward-thinking manager' as soon as possible.
