MARC Bircham has left his position as Millwall's assistant manager.

First team coach Nigel Gibbs will step up to become Ian Hollwoay's no.2 after Bircham accepted a role with Major League Soccer outfit Chicago Fire.

Bircham told the club's official site: "This was a very hard decision to make because I really feel there are good times ahead for Millwall under Ollie.

"But I had almost gone to the MLS earlier in my career, and this time, when the chance came up, it just seemed like such a great opportunity for myself and my family.

"I'm sure Millwall will stay up this season and I will always look forward to coming back to The Den."

Chief executive Andy Ambler added: "We wish Marc the very best with his new venture.

"He goes with our blessing and thanks for his hard work over the past year."

    Christ, Holloway is really going through the set-up with a sharp sabre. What's happening here? Has he finally come off the funny cigs? I'm not complaining, Bircham, it's reported, was not exactly Mr.Popular with the players. Gibbs was a well respected coach before we got him. Looking good. Maybe there is light at the end of the tunnel after all.
    Bircham-Good luck.
