Coventry City chief executive Steve Waggott has decided to leave his position with the Sky Blues.

Steve has worked for the club for four years and led the Sky Blues through a difficult period in the club's history.  

His work secured the club's return to the Ricoh Arena during the 2014/15 season and the appointment of manager Tony Mowbray during the summer.

Steve has issued the following statement following his departure from the club.

"I have decided after four years, and with the club in a good position, that now is the time to move on.

"Anyone who has worked with me over this time, knows the time and commitment I have put into the job in challenging circumstances. I have been living away from home for that period and feel it is now right to step away and allow the club to continue to progress.

"We sit a point off the top of the table, there is stability in the managerial and coaching situation and the club is back in its home city - all things I wanted to assist in achieving.

"I have got to know a great many people in Coventry and Warwickshire - supporters, community representatives and business figures - and have forged some strong friendships in what have been turbulent times - and for that I am very grateful.

"I wish the club and its supporters all the very best for the future."

Coventry City Chairman Tim Fisher said: "I'd like to place on record the club's thanks for everything Steve has achieved during his time with the club. 

"His commitment, market know how and experience has been invaluable to Coventry City over what has been a challenging period for the club and he leaves with the club heading forwards in the right direction.

"We're very sad to see Steve leave the club and I'm sure staff and supporters will join me in wishing Steve the very best for the future."

Joy Seppala, CEO of SISU said: “We are grateful for Steve’s contribution and hard work during the challenges of the recent past.  

"Striving for progress both on and off the pitch, Steve’s priority has always been CCFC.  

"We wish Steve all the best for the future and know that he will always be a close friend to the club.”
