Former Coventry City manager Aidy Boothroyd has admitted that he did not do his homework on the Sky Blues and took the job because the club were a big name.
Boothroyd left Colchester to join Coventry but only lasted seven months before he was ousted in February 2011 after a string of poor results.
Speaking to Glenn Moore of the Independent, Boothroyd, now manager of Northampton Town, said: "To me now it is more important to be working for the right club, and the right person, than it is to be working for a club with a 'name'.
"I didn't really do my homework on Coventry, on the people I was going to be working for. It was 'They're a big club', but I jumped too early out of Colchester."
