Upon his appointment at Bloomfield Road, Ternent began to reshape the team, spending large sums on new players. Jack Ashurst was purchased from Sunderland for a then-club-record £132,400. Fellow newcomers included Colin Morris, Peter Noble and Tom McAlister. Despite the fresh faces, the Seasiders' fortunes didn't improve, by early 1980 they were in the bottom half of the Third Division.

Ternent was not out of the game for long, he moved from the Premier League to Division Three in a matter of weeks, becoming Mike Walsh's right-hand man at Bury. When Walsh quit in October 1995, Ternent moved up to the manager's seat, seven months he took them to Division Two as third-placed team in Division Three. A year they won the Division Two championship and survived the first season in Division One. In Ternent's second season as Clarets manager, 1999–2000 and after a clear out, the club finished second in Division Two and won automatic promotion, he remained in charge for another four seasons, but the club's board did not renew his contract after the 2003–04 campaign and he left the club after six years, having failed to get them into the Premier League.
