Sounds like pushed
Using the art of reading what's there and, what tends to be more important, what's not there in the statement, it says that he'll be adding to the support staff as soon as he's evaluated candidates. I'd say that we won't see a new assistant manager (if anything, Coughlan may take up Assistant duties on match day), and that we'll see a new coach or two come in.
Believe it now then?!
I thought it was an interesting choice when he picked Tommy to start with as they'd never worked together before. Maybe the relationship just wasn't working, maybe Tommy didn't like being a number 2 after previously being boss, who knows.
I expect one of the following to happen:
1. Luggy appoints someone he knows well as assistant (Kevin Summerfield or John Blackley)
2. Coughlon becomes assistant manager and Widdrington's wages are spent on a new player
3. An experienced pro joins us as Player/Asst. manager (cue the Chris Powell rumours!)
