West Brom sack chairman John Williams and chief executive Martin Goodman
The Baggies have acted with the club bottom of the Premier League.
West Brom have sacked chairman John Williams and chief executive Martin Goodman.
The pair have been given notice of termination of their contracts and been placed on garden leave with immediate effect, the club announced on Tuesday.
Following his recent appointment as a director of WBA Holdings, the club’s controlling company, Mark Jenkins will return as chief executive.
A club spokesman said: “We would like to thank John and Martin for all their efforts since their appointments and wish them well for the future.”
The sackings come with Albion bottom of the Premier League and seven points from the safety line following Monday’s 3-0 defeat at Chelsea, with the club citing poor results as a catalyst for change.
The Baggies have beaten just Bournemouth, Burnley and Brighton this season and went on a 20-game winless run between August and January.
But skipper Evans has a release clause in his contract which would allow him to leave for £3million if Albion were relegated.
Jenkins, who was previously chief executive at the club for 14 years, added: “There is much to do but for now the focus must solely be on the remaining games of this season.”
