Ipswich Town reportedly tell Terry Butcher there is no coaching role for him next term




Ipswich Town legend Terry Butcher has reportedly been informed that there is no coaching role at the club for him next season.

The 62-year-old, who was part of Sir Bobby Robson's UEFA Cup-winning side, returned to Ipswich in February 2020 as part of the academy set-up.

And last term he assisted Kieron Dyer as the Under-23s finished second in the Professional Development League Two South.

However, according to TWTD, Butcher is now being stood aside ahead of the 2021/22 campaign getting under way.

The report adds that former Town midfielder Dyer will continue in his role as manager of the Under-23s, with Bryan Klug – who has been head of player and coaching development at the academy – taking on the role of assistant.

Lee O'Neill is also set to keep his position as academy manager – a role he holds alongside his responsibility of being general manager of football operations.
