Steve McClaren, who is considered to be the top contender for Newcastle United head coach job has been sacked by Derby County with immediate effect.
The former England manager has previously been linked to the head coach job and was the bookies favourite to replace Pardew before John Carver took over.
In a statement the East Midlands club said:
The decision follows a thorough review of the 2014/15 season by the club’s Board of Directors.
The Board believes that the appointment of a new Head Coach is required to continue the club’s on-field progress and the search is now underway to appoint a successor.
The Board remains firmly committed and driven to achieving promotion to the Premier League.
