Paul Jewell has resigned as Wigan manager – less than 24 hours after saving the Premiership club from relegation.
Jewell’s departure comes after a dramatic final day victory over Sheffield United which preserved their Premiership status and condemned the Blades to relegation.
He has been linked with Manchester City where manager Stuart Pearce has been under pressure for a number of months.
Jewell joined Wigan in June 2001 from Sheffield Wednesday.
He guided The Latics to the League One title in 2002-03 and in 2004-05 they finished runners-up to Sunderland in the Championship to reach the top flight for the first time in their history.
Wigan surprised many observers by surviving comfortably in their first season, finishing 10th and also reaching the Carling Cup final.
