Archie Knox is leaving Bolton Wanderers.
Stunned ex-Manchester United assistant boss Knox will be looking for a proper pay-off after joining Bolton at the troubled start of their campaign.
Megson is looking for his own people and will make more swinging cuts and changes this summer.
Knox is one of SIX to be shunted out, with several staff - many of Sam Allardyce's large team - axed in savage cuts.
The club have denied it is a cost-cutting measure.
