Bournemouth sacked Gary O’Neill less than seven months after becoming the club’s permanent manager.
The 40-year-old took over as interim boss after Scott Parker was sacked in August, then was appointed permanently in November.
O’Neill won 10 of 34 Premier League matches last season, guiding Bournemouth to a 15th-place finish.
“It was a tough decision,” Bournemouth owner Bill Foley said.
“It has been done with great consideration to put ourselves in the best light ahead of next season.
“Gary will go on to have a long career as a head coach or manager, but we feel that at this moment, the change will be in the best interests of this football club.”
Bournemouth said they would announce O’Neill’s successor “soon”.
