West Ham have officially confirmed that backroom staff Alan Irvine, Stuart Pearce and Billy McKinlay have also departed with immediate effect following the departure of David Moyes.
Former Hammer Stuart Pearce will be sorely missed by many supporters who thought that Moyes had created one of the best West Ham backroom teams in living memory.
It normal practise for the backroom team to pay the price when the manager goes and their contracts often mirror the manager’s contract to limit any compensation paid out by the club.
Any incoming manager will usually what to bring in their own backroom team and David Sullivan has promised supporters a decision within ten days on who that might be.
Rumours have already started to circulate that Moyes could return to Everton following the sacking of Sam Allardyce this morning and if that is proved to be true, the backroom team could soon be relocating to Merseyside to rejoin their gaffer.
