In terms of league positions, Bowyer enjoyed two superb seasons for the Seasiders.

First, he masterminded an immediate return from League Two in his first year in charge before consolidating that with an even more impressive 12th-placed finish in the third tier.

But how do his stats shape up?

Of the 115 games he took charge of Blackpool, he won 42, drew 40 and lost 33, with a win percentage of 36.5%. The only man to better that in recent history is Ian Holloway.

Here's how he measures up to Pool's previous six hot-seat dwellers:

- Neil McDonald took charge of 50 games from June 2015. He won 13, drew 10 and lost 27. Win percentage of 26%.

- Lee Clark's disastrous spell from October 2014 to June 2015 saw him win only three of his 33 games in charge, losing 19. Win percentage of 9%.

- But he had nothing on Jose Riga who won only once in 15 games from June to October 2014. Win percentage of 6.6%.

- And Barry Ferguson was another who managed only three wins in his 20 games in charge from January 2014, losing 12. Win percentage of 15%.

- Ian Holloway is rightly considered one of Blackpool's most successful managers having done the impossible and guided the Seasiders to the Premier League in 2010. Upon leaving the club, he left a record of 62 wins from 162 games, with 43 draws and 57 defeats. Win percentage of 38.75%.
