Burnley have sacked manager Sean Dyche with eight games left of their season in the Premier League.
The Clarets, who have lost five of their last six top-flight games, are 18th and four points from safety.
Dyche was the Premier League's longest serving manager, having taken over at Turf Moor in October 2012.
Burnley chairman Alan Pace said it was "an incredibly difficult decision" to part company with the 50-year-old, but "we feel a change is needed".
- 'A huge gamble that smacks of blind panic'
Dyche's last game in charge of Burnley saw them lose 2-0 to Norwich City, who are bottom of the Premier League.
Assistant manager Ian Woan, first-team coach Steve Stone and goalkeeping coach Billy Mercer have also left the club.
"Firstly, we would like to place on record our sincere thanks to Sean and his staff for their achievements at the club over the last decade," said Pace.
"During his time at Turf Moor, Sean has been a credit both on and off the pitch, respected by players, staff, supporters, and the wider football community.
"However, results this season have been disappointing and, while this was an incredibly difficult decision, with eight crucial games of the campaign remaining, we feel a change is needed to give the squad the best possible chance of retaining its Premier League status.
"Under-23s coach Mike Jackson, assisted by academy director Paul Jenkins, Under-23s goalkeeping coach Connor King and club captain Ben Mee have been asked to take charge of the team for Sunday's game with West Ham United.
"The process of replacing Sean has begun and further announcements will be made to supporters in due course."

Dyche had signed a new four-year contract until 2025 with Burnley in September last year.
During his spell at the club he guided them to two promotions from the Championship and two top-half Premier League finishes.
He also helped Burnley achieve their first European qualification in 51 years courtesy of leading them to a commendable seventh place in the Premier League in 2017-18.
However, the Clarets have won just four Premier League games this season, the worst win record in the league.
'Burnley fans were still loyal to him'
"It's massive news, no one really expected it," reacted former Burnley midfielder Paul Weller.
"He has been backed by the board for so long, so to do it so late in the season is a really big surprise.
"To do it so late in the week is leaving it really tight because there's a massive game coming up against West Ham on Sunday. There's a big eight games left and we need somebody in there quick."
Weller added: "Sean has had to take the ultimate punishment.
"What he has done at Burnley is unbelievable, he has done it on a shoestring [budget]. He's not been supported by any of the chairmen financially like other Premier League managers have been.
"It's been a really difficult season and I think that's why everybody is so surprised because the fans love him.
"Even though we are struggling, we are down at the bottom and it's looking like relegation, Burnley fans were still loyal to him."

'The impact has to be absolutely immediate' - Analysis
BBC Sport football reporter Simon Stone
Burnley are in their sixth successive season in the Premier League, which is their longest run in the top flight since their heydays in the 1960s.
It is a brave owner of any football club who just accepts relegation without doing something to stop it. Alan Pace, the owner and chairman of Burnley, is a relatively new owner and he has decided to act.
The impact has to be absolutely immediate and I guess that means Burnley picking up points immediately. They start against West Ham on Sunday, then Southampton and Wolves.
Sean Dyche is highly employable. Any like-minded club such as Burnley, Dyche will be top of the people who will be to be favourites to take over that job.
He has been linked with many Premier League jobs over the years. He has always responded to those rumours by saying he was at Burnley - now he is not. I don't think it will be long until he gets another job.
Clearly the problem for Burnley is getting another manager for themselves.

He has my utmost respect and good luck in the future, I’m pretty sure he’ll be a sought after manager, and by PL clubs too. Somewhere Burnley might not see for years to come.

Comment posted by Alicydon, at 11:33 15 AprAlicydon11:33 15 AprShame, been a loyal manager for Burnley and kept them in the premier league for several seasons, punching above their weight. And with so few games left, what's the benefit?

Comment posted by VF, at 11:33 15 AprVF11:33 15 AprStupid decision and without class.The only reason Burnley are in the PL is because of Dyche. Should have gave him to the end of the seasons . They owed him that.
Reply posted by gadgyarab, at 12:19 15 Aprgadgyarab12:19 15 Aprto VFgadgyarab replied: The point is that the owners don't "owe" him the chance to relegate the club. They had to do something and they cannot change the playing squad.

Owners really aren't football people are they.
Reply posted by twinprime, at 11:42 15 Aprtwinprime11:42 15 Aprto Orkneyboytwinprime replied: Basically no owners are "football people" - and to be honest throughout football history most owners never were.
Having said that - the term "football people" is a bit of a cliche. Football is full of so called "football people" who've never done anything of note as managers or owners.

Comment posted by aron, at 11:37 15 Apraron11:37 15 AprA man who kept them in the league for years with no resources no money , selling their players , selling their top striker in January yet it’s his fault? When they go down who they going to find to bring them up . Once again short term thinking to push the blame away from another club with a deluded board

Comment posted by MyOpinionCounts-just, at 11:38 15 AprMyOpinionCounts-just11:38 15 AprAwful decision. They only reason Burnley stayed in the Prem as long as they did is Dyche. They never really backed him in any transfer window so I'm bkt sure what they expected.... relegation is guaranteed now and God knows when they'll be back.

Comment posted by Tomkorn42, at 11:37 15 AprTomkorn4211:37 15 AprWow, you do wonder what can of idiots run some of these clubs to make decisions like this. The only reason Burnley have been in the PL for an extended period is because of Dyche. Constantly the lowest spending club in the league and he’s worked wonders on a constant shoestring. Absolutely appalling decision.

Comment posted by Richard, at 11:33 15 AprRichard11:33 15 AprOnly the powers that be can decide if this is the correct decision for the club. But to sack the manager at this stage of the season without an immediate (or very rapid) replacement seems foolish.

Comment posted by RDW_SW, at 11:32 15 AprRDW_SW11:32 15 AprRidiculous decision. Burnley still had a decent chance of staying up with Dyche in charge. What affect will this have on the players now?
Reply posted by waste of licence fee, at 12:04 15 Aprwaste of licence fee12:04 15 Aprto RDW_SWwaste of licence fee replied: Look at the table and look at how many wins Burnley have had all season. They didn’t have a decent chance of staying up it was very slim. So the owner has taken a decision for change as doing nothing would have likely seen them down anyway.
