Dundee United have announced the departure of Csaba László following a 5-1 defeat at Tannadice to Ross County.
The Tangerines, who sit fourth in the Scottish Championship, have placed assistant manager Laurie Ellis in interim charge of the first team.
László had taken charge of Dundee United following the departure of Ray McKinnon in November 2018.
The Hungarian failed to take the Tannadice Park club up through the play-offs after losing to Livingston.
The search now begins for Dundee United’s fifth manager in three years.
In a statement on the club website, chairman Mike Martin said: “I would like to thank Csaba for the considerable commitment he showed during his time at Dundee United and for his contribution to improving the underpinning football structure at the club.
“We wish him all the best for the future.
“I can also confirm that Laurie Ellis has taken interim management responsibility for the team.”
Ellis has had one previous spell as interim manager following the departure of Ray McKinnon.
He took charge of two games, overseeing wins against Dumbarton and eventual championship winners St Mirren.
