Relegated Rotherham part company with manager Leam Richardson

The Millers will start next season in League One

Rotherham have parted company with manager Leam Richardson by mutual consent after just five months in charge.

The former Wigan boss took over from Matt Taylor in December but endured a miserable time at the New York Stadium, losing 18 of his 24 games in charge and overseeing relegation to Sky Bet League One.

His appointment was with a view to rebuilding the club in the third tier but he has not made it until the end of the season, with his assistant Rob Kelly also leaving with immediate effect.

A club statement read: “Rotherham can confirm that the club have parted company with first-team head coach Leam Richardson with immediate effect.

“Leam was appointed in December 2023, taking charge of 24 matches in all competitions during that time. Assistant head coach Rob Kelly has also left the club.

“Everyone at Rotherham would like to thank Leam and Rob for all their efforts and wish them well for the future.

“The search to appoint a new first-team manager is already under way, with further communication to follow in due course.

“Rotherham will be making no further comment at this time.”

It remains unclear who will be in charge for the remaining three games of the season, starting with the home game against Birmingham on Saturday.
