Milton Keynes Dons Football Club and First-Team Manager Dan Micciche have parted company.
The mutual decision, made with a heavy heart, comes after discussions between the Chairman and Micciche, with the team now six points adrift of safety in Sky Bet League One.
Micciche said: “This is a Club that means a lot to me and my family and I put every ounce of effort into the job. Unfortunately, the fine margins have gone against us and it hasn’t worked out in the way we would have wanted.
“I am extremely grateful to the board, staff, players and fans for their tremendous support during my time here. It has been an honour to manage this Football Club and I would love nothing more than to see it get back to where it belongs.”
Chairman Pete Winkelman, who will address the media on Monday, said: “I am grateful to Dan for his dedication to the role during this testing period in our history and I sincerely wish him the very best for the future.”
Assistant Manager Keith Millen will take charge of first-team affairs for the remaining three games of the season.
