West Ham first team coach Ian Hendon has agreed to become the new manager of Leyton Orient, Sky Sports are reporting.
Orient have been looking for a new manager after Fabio Liverani departed by mutual consent earlier this month after failing to avoid relegation to League Two.
Hendon played for Spurs, Barnet and Leyton Orient and had spells managing Barnet and Dover Athletic as well being the assistant manager of Gillingham before he joined West Ham in 2011.
Hendon will become the second of Sam’s backroom boys to exit West Ham following the departure of former attacking coach Teddy Sheringham to League 2 Stevenage. Assistant manager Neil McDonald has been linked with the Blackpool job with reports claiming talks are ongoing.
