According to the book Football Oddities by Tony Matthews, under the section “Discipline”, subsection “Football League” where Mr. Matthews lists various random-ish facts:

“The first manager to be sent off in a League game was Ronnie Rooke, as playermanager of Crystal Palace v Millwall in October 1949.”
