Alan Pardew has "parted company" with Championship-bound West Bromwich Albion after crisis talks at The Hawthorns.
The Premier League's basement club has lost its last eight games – and is almost certain to be relegated this season.
John Carver – who had been Pardew's No 2 during his time as Newcastle United manager – has also left West Brom.
Pardew had succeeded Tony Pulis, who was sacked in November after a run of eight league games without a win.
A club statement read: "West Bromwich Albion and Alan Pardew have agreed to mutually part company today following discussions between both parties.
"Assistant Head Coach John Carver will also be leaving.
"The club would like to thank Alan and John for their efforts and wish them well in their future endeavours.
"First-team coach Darren Moore has been placed in charge of first team affairs until further notice.
"The club will not be making any further comment at this time."
Newcastle entertain West Brom on April 28.
