Blackpool have sacked head coach Michael Appleton after just seven months in charge following an 11-game winning streak.
Assistant head coach David Kerslake will also leave the Championship club, which are second bottom in the table.
“The club would like to thank Michael and David for their efforts during their time at Bloomfield Road and wish them all the best,” a statement read.
The Seasiders said they hoped to name a replacement “in the coming days”.
Appleton was nominated by Blackpool for the second time in June 2022, on a four-year contract, replacing Neil Critchley, who left to join Steven Gerrard’s backstage team at Aston Villa.
His second tenure was longer than his first, when he spent just 65 days at the helm in the 2012-13 season before leaving to join Blackburn Rovers, having won two out of 13 games.
His departure, which comes with the club three points from second-tier security, means 14 of the 24 Championship sides have now changed managers this season.
The former Portsmouth, Oxford United and Lincoln City boss leaves Blackpool after winning seven out of 29 games in his second spell with the club.
Their most recent victory came when they eliminated Premier League side Nottingham Forest from the FA Cup in the third round, but their form in the league saw them fall in a relegation battle.
The Seasiders have been winless in the Championship since beating Coventry on October 29, with the club picking up just four points from a possible 30 since then.
