Vacant Jobs not being filled - New Managers not getting Hired

I was in the middle of a save and yesterday patch updated to 13.3.3 and as far as I know the save, before the update, was working normally, with managers getting fired and new ones replacing them at regular intervals. However, after the patch I noticed that while vacancies were coming up, but they were not being filled up. Consequently in the save even after nearly 7 months of first noticing this, nearly 20 - 30 teams are without a Head Coach. What is worse, is I applied to some jobs and while they all acknowledged the application they all said that no development in this regard is likely for a while, in other words even the teams tell me they are in no mood to hire. I first noticed this in Jan and now I am in September and the vacancies that opened up in Jan are still open. I know because I noticed this as I applied to a job in Jan and the status of those jobs is still "applied". So I know that they were never filled, even after 7 months !!

As I said, after a while it became obvious that no vacancy is being filled, and 20-30 teams have no head coaches. Needless to say the save is ruined.

Is there any way to fix this? Also why did this happen? Is it like a bug or something in the new patch, or just happened cos the save was started with patch 13.3.2 and after a while it patched to 13.3.3 midway. I was going to start a new save, but thought of asking if anyone had experienced something similar or has any suggestions to offer, so I don't ruin the new save I start.

I had this happen on a journeyman save and i put it down to having added/removed leagues at the end of the season as most of the unfilled jobs were in a league i had removed but maybe it is an actual bug.

Yeah even I think its a bug. I posted this on the Sports Interactive Forums yesterday l, but have yet to receive a response. If its a bug, it needs to be resolved, I mean they cannot just leave it as it is, as we know that there are no more patches in the pipeline. So this needs to be looked into.

I noticed this as well mate!

http://www.fm-base.co.uk/forum/football-manager-2013-discussion/116145-international-management.html

this also applied to club teams but was not worried about that as I was a the manager of a club!

it does seem buggy to me as well!

Yeah lets bring this to the notice of the developers. If it is indeed a bug, and I think it is, I would make saves unplayable after a while. I mean you may end up (eventually) as the ONLY manager in the world. While its funny, it would make the save unplayable.
