Dundee have announced that boss Jim McIntyre and assistant Jimmy Boyle have left the club with immediate effect.
The Dark Blues were relegated last week with managing director John Nelms subsequently flying to the States for crisis talks with owner Tim Keyes.
The Dens supremo returned this weekend and delivered the grim news to McIntyre that he was being let go.
Ironically, Dundee won yesterday at Livingston after 10 previous defeats in a row.
However, that was not enough to save McIntyre who was brought in to replace Neil McCann last October following a poor start to the season.
In a statement, the club said: “Dundee Football Club can confirm that Jim McIntyre and Jimmy Boyle have left the club with immediate effect.
“Jim came to the club in October last year and shortly after Jimmy was appointed as his assistant manager.
“The management team oversaw 31 matches in charge, with 3 victories, 7 draws and 20 defeats.
“Relegation from the Ladbrokes Premiership was confirmed last weekend with a loss to Hamilton Accies at the Kilmac Stadium at Dens Park.
“We would like thank Jim and Jimmy for their efforts while in charge and wish them all the best for the future.”
