Championship Hull City have parted company with former first-team coaches Steve Wigley and Stuart Watkiss, reports BBC Sport.

The departures were expected after Steve Bruce replaced the sacked Nick Barmby as manager last week.

Fitness co-ordinator Shaun Rush is also believed to have left the club, but goalkeeping coach Gary Walsh - a former team-mate of Bruce - is to stay on.

Bruce is believed to have made approaches to fill the vacancies but nothing has been firmed up yet.
