Football: Denis booted out.
Smith was given the boot for failing to match the club's ambitions after they finished a depressing 12th in the English First Division last season.
West Brom chairman Tony Hale himself survived an attempt to remove him from power earlier this month but admitted that things couldn't go on as they were.
He said: "The board recognises that the team's performance on the pitch must improve.
"We have decided that a new manager must be appointed and will be seeking to make that appointment as soon as possible."
