Brighton confirmed the news in a statement this evening that offered no reason for the surprise move, which comes three days after the Seagulls exited the play-offs at the hands of bitter rivals Crystal Palace.
The statement read: "Brighton & Hove Albion has confirmed that it has suspended its manager, assistant manager, and its first-team coach from their duties.
"The club will now follow its internal procedures with regard to this matter and will make no further comment at this time."
