Relegated Swansea and Stoke Release Coaches in Record Purge
(AP) — The departures of coaches Carlos Carvalhal and Paul Lambert from relegated English Premier League clubs on Friday raised the number of manager changes to a record 15 this season.
Also, relegated West Bromwich Albion removed the interim tag on Darren Moore and made him its new coach.
Swansea decided not to renew Carvalhal's contract and Stoke let go of Lambert by "mutual consent."
They were the third and fourth coaches to leave their roles this week, following Sam Allardyce at Everton and David Moyes at West Ham.
There were 10 changes during the league, plus the pre-announced exit of Arsene Wenger at Arsenal.
The previous record was 13 in 2013-14 for a league season from Aug. 1 to May 31.
