The Terriers from Huddersfield are currently lying in 4th place in League 1, only 4 points away from automatic promotion. It is being reported that Clark was apparently relieved of his duties in a 2 minute phone call from club chairman Dean Hoyle.
The Galpharm Stadium based club have released the following statement concerning their decision,
"This was a very difficult decision; one not taken lightly or in response to one result. Concerns have been raised over recent weeks. Lee and his coaching staff have put their all into the job over the past three seasons and he has made a huge contribution to the Club."
"However with 16 matches to go we still have an opportunity to achieve promotion and we have made this change with this in mind."
It can only be described as a crazy decision, delivered in an abhorrent way. What on earth is the football world coming to?
