It, therefore, sparks questions as to why he is yet to be replaced, especially given the multitude of names touted for the job.
One such name who might catch the eye, in particular, is Carlos Corberan, who not only fits the mould of a young and progressive manager but also has vast experience in the EFL and far beyond.
To make things even better, he has often employed a 3-4-3 formation, which is a style the Baggies have often operated in.
He has relied upon quick and incisive counterattacks, with intelligent pressing and a fluid attacking line. Someone who might benefit from this kind of play is Grady Diangana, who has admittedly been disappointing this season.
Under this potential new leadership, however, his attributes match up well with the philosophy of the former Marcelo Bielsa disciple.
Possessing incredible speed and great decision-making in the final third, he could become a decisive asset that could underpin Corberan’s entire system.
Having scored eight and assisted seven in his debut season at the Hawthorns, the former Huddersfield Town manager will be hoping to spark this kind of form once more should he take up the vacant manager position.
Where he nearly took the Terriers to an unlikely promotion just last season, he will be expected to go one better if he does make the move.
Diangana will likely be integral to whoever gets offered the position, but Corberan in particular could squeeze the best out of the Englishman with his particular play style.
