Bristol City has announced that manager Steve Cotterill has been relieved of his duties with immediate effect.
It's thought the sacking comes after a poor run of one win from their past 12 matches in all competitions.
The 51-year-old guided the Robins to the League One title and also saw the club win the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy at Wembley last season.
Club chairman Keith Dawe said despite Cotterill delivering a League One championship, 'the time has come for us to all move forward'.
Sadly, since the highs of last March and May things have not gone our way on the pitch and Steve has now left the club.
I thank Steve Cotterill for all his efforts over the last two seasons. Sadly we haven’t managed to push on from last season and the time has come for us to all move forward.
The club’s aspiration is to ultimately become a Premier League club and this decision has been made to achieve our overall strategy for growth and player development.

Bristol City have agreed the loan signing of Wigan Athletic goalkeeper Richard O’Donnell until the end of the season.
The 27-year-old goes straight into the team for tonight's Championship match (12 January) against Preston North End.
We know all about Richard from his games against us last season, the away game at Walsall in the league and then the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy final at Wembley.
He wasn’t involved in the 8-2 defeat, otherwise I’m sure he would have got some stick from our lads when he arrived.
