The 58-year-old leaves the club after just 16 games at the helm. The club are currently sitting in fourth place in League One but have experienced a winless six-game run.
"I am extremely disappointed for the players, their performances over the past month have not gained the points they deserved," O'Driscoll said.
"This is a different phase of the season, and as we have repeatedly seen, teams have recognised the team’s strengths from the first half of the campaign and prepared to counter that when facing us.
"But the players deserve enormous credit for adapting, finding different ways to play and maintaining their performance levels even, at times, in the face of frustration and disappointment.
"They are a close group whose success so far has been built on the trust, understanding and respect among them. I wish them the best for the rest of the season."
