Stoke boss Pulis shaking up coaching staff

Stoke City boss Tony Pulis is shaking up his coaching staff.

Gerry Francis, the former Spurs and QPR manager brought in to assist Pulis last season, has already said he may step down because of problems dividing his Stoke role with media work in London.

There has also been recent speculation about the future of Pulis's current assistant manager, long-term ally Dave Kemp.

Kemp has been Pulis's number two during both his stints at the Britannia Stadium and during his time at Plymouth Argyle, but his family live in the United States.

Stoke have already began to shake up their backroom staff with fitness coach John McKeown leaving the club on Monday, says The Sentinel.
