Tony Daley believes Wolves' relegation from the Premier League was not down to one individual but because of a "culmination of many mistakes".
Wolves' three-year stay in the Premier League was brought to an end earlier this month after a hugely disappointing season of only five wins.
Daley, Wolves' Head of First Team Athletic Performance, believes too many mistakes were made to pinpoint the relegation on one individual, but he says the players ultimately developed a "losing habit" they were unable to get out of.
"It's very difficult to pinpoint why we struggled," he told TEAMtalk. "We had a very good start going unbeaten in the first three games, but we got into a losing habit.
"At first as we started to lose games we still thought we'd get out of trouble but we conceded far too many goals.
"It wasn't just a defensive problem, though, it was all around the team. We just made too many errors as a team and you can't say it (being relegated) was down to one individual, it was a culmination of many things."
Wolves' chief executive Jez Moxey has admitted that the sacking of Mick McCarthy and subsequent struggle to find a replacement did not help matters, and Daley believes the decision to change manager was made too late.
"Any change or period of uncertainty is always difficult, but TC (Terry Connor) provided us with a bit of continuity.
"He had his own ideas and knew exactly what was needed to improve and get results. And we did improve the performances but still weren't getting the results - the change just came too late, I think.
"Performances improved but results didn't, for the reason I said before - we were in a habit.
"When you change a manager either results start to improve or they go the other way and, although that wasn't the case for us as we were already losing games, we didn't get the impetus we wanted."
Daley has already met the club's new manager, Stale Solbakken, and the former England winger is optimistic about the future.
He added: "I briefly met him for 10 minutes on the day of his press conference and all is fine. I'm quite happy and looking forward to working with him next season."
