Notts County have parted company with first-team manager Harry Kewell.
The Australian leaves his role with immediate effect, along with assistant manager Warren Feeney and first-team analyst Paul Murphy.
Kewell, who joined the club in September, won only three of his 14 matches at the helm and Notts’ owner and chairman Alan Hardy says the board felt quick action was essential.
He said: “Harry’s passion and commitment as a coach is unquestionable.
“I enjoyed seeing first-hand his love for the job and it gives me absolutely no pleasure to take that away from him.
“Unfortunately, however, things quite simply were not working out for him here at Meadow Lane.
“Results have not been good enough and performance levels are a continuing concern. We see no reason to continue with something we don’t think can work.
“Harry leaves with our best wishes for the future and our search for a new manager begins immediately.
"We hope to make an appointment before Saturday’s Sky Bet League Two match at home to Cheltenham Town.”
Steve Chettle will take charge of first-team affairs in the meantime.
The club will be making no further comment at this stage.
