West Ham United have decided not to hand David Moyes a new contract and the former Everton and Manchester United boss has left the club.
The 55-year-old replaced Slaven Bilic as Hammers boss in November and managed to steer the club to a mid-table finish after they had flirted with relegation for much of the campaign.
They eventually finished 13th, nine points clear of the bottom three, after winning two and drawing one of their last three matches.
There were some very low points during the campaign including a 3-0 home loss to Burnley in March and a 4-1 capitulation to Manchester City just over a fortnight ago.
However, there were some highlights as well including a 4-1 victory at Huddersfield Town and 3-0 home triumph against Southampton.
Moyes' assistants Alan Irvine, Stuart Pearce and Billy McKinlay have also left the club with immediate effect.
Joint chairman David Sullivan said: "I would like to place on record my sincere thanks to David Moyes and his staff for achieving the target of keeping West Ham United in the Premier League.
"When David and his team arrived, it was the wish of both parties that the focus be only on the six months until the end of the season, at which point a decision would be made with regards to the future. Having taken stock of the situation and reflected now the campaign is complete, we feel that it is right to move in a different direction.
"We are already taking steps to identify and recruit the manager we believe can take West Ham United forward in line with our ambitions. We aim to appoint a high-calibre figure who we feel will lead the club into an exciting future for our loyal supporters within the next 10 days."
West Ham are 6/1 to be relegated next season, while Huddersfield are 6/5 to go down and Cardiff City 4/5.
