Villa will reportedly launch a root-and-branch investigation into the club's dire state.
And the People report that Fox is the most likely to be in the firing line - with the Villa executive currently on £1 million per year.
As is usually the way in British business, the money Villa will likely spend on consultants and their investigation will probably set them back huge amounts - while yielding very little in terms of actual results.
And, as is also often the case, the most common-sense decisions probably won't be made...
But at least the new Aston Villa men are doing something. Will it be enough to change the long-term downward trajectory of the club? Fans can hope.
