Aston Villa have dismissed assistant manager Ian Culverhouse following an investigation that followed his suspension in April.
Culverhouse, who previously worked alongside Villa manager Paul Lambert at Carrow Road and at Colchester, was suspended in April due to disciplinary issues.
At the time, owner Randy Lerner referred to "unexpected issues that could have very easily set the club back".
Press Association Sport understands Villa have now sacked the 49-year-old, with Lambert now seeking a new number two.
Villa also sacked head of football operations Gary Karsa, whose career at the club was also put on hold in April after he too faced allegations relating to off-field issues.
