Copied this from a thread i did a while back.
When a manager gets sacked there should be more of a turnover regarding coaching staff. When a manager gets sacked usually all staff that he signed will leave aswell.
Souness was appointed manager of Newcastle, he brought in Alan Murray as assistant, Dean Saunders as first team coach, Terry McDermott as coach and Roy Tunks as Goalkeeper coach.
When he got sacked (thank god!) all of the staff left with him except Terry McDermott due to his previous ties with the club. This left the new manager the chance to bring in his own coaching staff. Now for my suggestion..
When AI managers get sacked the AI teams should sack the staff who were employed with him. These positions should remain empty until a manager is appointed. Sometimes the new coaching staff will be appointed the same time as the manager (eg Le Guen brought his merry men with him to rangers as soon as he was appointed)
This can be mentioned in the news item when the manager is appointed.
[enter club name here] have today confirmed the appointment of [enter manager here] as the clubs new manager. [enter club name here] have also confirmed that he will be joined by [person 2] as his assistant, [person 3] as first team coach.
[enter club here] hope that the new management team will be able to take the club forward.
[enter club name here] have today confirmed the appointment of [enter manager here] as the clubs new manager. [enter manager here] told the press that he is yet to decide on who he wants to bring in as his coaching staff but there is speculation that he could be tempted to bring in [enter ass manager] from his previous club [club name]
This could appear as a media message at the club that the assistant manager is currently employed at and the current manager could have 3 responses....
a) [ass manager name] has known [manager name] for a long time and if he wants to go then i dont want to stop him.
b) I dont wish to comment on any of my staff
c) He is a key member of the staff and wont be leaving
AI managers should have more of a bias when recruiting staff to join them, managers from other countries should hire staff from that country (e.g Benitez bringing in spanish staff to Liverpool, Le Guen bringing in french staff to Rangers) They should also favour staff that are on their favorite personnel list.
You the Manager
This could be part of your contract at your current club or could be part of the contract you are offered if another club is trying to appoint you. Request Staff Appointment could be an additional clause under request stadium expansion etc.
This could bring up the staff search screen. Then you can select a staff member from there (or search via the top left search bar) then select a member of staff and give them a staff role Ass Manager, 1st Team Coach, Coach, Goalkeeper Coach, Youth Team Coach, Physio, Scout. This could be done using the same drop down boxes we have when offering staff a job role.
The board could then say we can only afford to bring in 2 of the 3 selected staff. Please choose which staff you wish to approach to join you etc
