PAUL TISDALE leaving Exeter City after 12 years

Exeter City boss Paul Tisdale courtesy & copyright Dave ROWNTREEExeter City have confirmed Paul Tisdale is leaving the club after 12 years.
Tisdale's last game in charge of the red and whites was Monday's 3-1 League Two play-off final defeat by Coventry City at Wembley.
It was the 45-year-old's 625th game as Grecians manager after becoming City boss in June 2006.
Tisdale led City to a second successive League Two play-off final after the Devon side finished fourth in the division last month.
An official Exeter City FC statement this morning confirmed "The club is sad to report that Paul will be leaving after 12 years as manager."
In confirming Tisalde had not taken up the option to sign a new "significantly improved" contract, Exeter City chairman Julian Tagg added "we are now at the point where we must move on and unexpectedly plan for a future without Paul as our manager.”
In thanking the departing first team boss, Tagg also recognised Tisdale as "Exeter City's most successful manager".
Tisdale is the only City manager to have won back-to-back promotions.
He led City from (the former) Football Conference Premier to League One in successive seasons 2008, 2009 and managed them to an equal best ever finish of eighth in League One in 2011.
Tisalde is favourite to take over as the new Milton Keynes manager following the Dons end of season relegation to League Two.
It now remains to be seen who will undertake the difficult task of following in Tisdale's managerial boots at St James' Park.
