Ipswich have sacked Paul Cook following a goalless draw with League Two strugglers Barrow in the second round of the FA Cup.
The former Portsmouth and Wigan manager was appointed in March on a contract to 2023, but a run of poor results left Ipswich 11th in League One, seven points off the play-off zone.
The club’s chief executive, Mark Ashton, said: “Firstly, we would like to thank Paul and his team for their efforts in what has been a difficult transition period for everyone.
“I know how much Paul wanted to succeed at this club. However, following discussions with the board, we have decided a change is needed for our long-term interests. At this moment, there is no one lined up to replace Paul. There will be an extensive search to find the best replacement for the club. I will communicate more to the media and our supporters on Monday.”
