Ross County have parted company with manager Derek Adams and director of football George Adams.
Club chairman Roy MacGregor made the announcement this morning following a poor start to the Scottish Premiership season in which the Staggies have lost all four of their matches.
A statement on the club website said: “Ross County FC and their manager and director of football, Derek and George Adams, have come to an agreement, whereby they will part ways, effective from today.
“Chairman, Roy MacGregor wishes to recognise the contribution both have made to the journey that Ross County FC have made over their years with the club and wish both well in their future careers.
“Further details of the club’s continuing restructuring will be made available as plans are ratified over the following days.”
The Dingwall side came from behind to defeat Stranraer 2-1 in the League Cup on Tuesday but the victory proved to be insufficient for Adams to retain his position.
The pair were notified of the news last night, with chairman MacGregor citing “on and off the field reasons” for the decision.
MacGregor said: “In the life of football clubs sometimes change needs to happen, and in the life of Ross County we just feel change is for a number of reasons has had to be made.”
Assistant manager Steven Ferguson will take charge of the team for Saturday’s Premiership trip to Hamilton Accies.
