Still, it wasn’t enough to save Peter Reid’s job as coach of Plymouth, a last-place club in the fourth tier of English soccer.

Acting Plymouth chairman Peter Risdale thanked Reid on Sunday for “helping keep the club alive during this turbulent period.” But Risdale says the 55-year-old former Manchester City manager was fired after 15 months to “give ourselves time to attempt to preserve Football League status.”

Reid, a former England international, auctioned his FA Cup runner-up medal he won with Everton in 1986 to raise funds for the financially struggling club. Plymouth, in southwest England, has only one point this season.
