The David Moyes era is over in Manchester, so soon after it began.
Manchester United announced the firing of Moyes as their manager Tuesday morning on Twitter. (Where else?)
It's been a disastrous first season for Moyes as Sir Alex Ferguson's chosen replacement, and he's been let go less than a year into a six-year contract. Because all the players can't be fired.
"Player-coach Ryan Giggs is expected to take charge of United's next game at home against Norwich on Saturday," according to the BBC.
Moyes' assistant Steve Round and first-team coach Jimmy Lumsden have also reportedly been let go, the BBC adds.
More to come, surely, as the dust settles, but Moyes is out, as United stumbles toward the finish line in its worst Premier League season since 1990. The defending champions are in seventh place with four games to play, and have been eliminated from all cup competitions.
No, these aren't the glory days.
