The Cherries have parted company with manager Jason Tindall, after 27 games in charge.
Bournemouth have given club stalwart Jason Tindall the axe after a run of four consecutive defeats – the Cherries lie in sixth, and eight points off the automatic promotion places.
The club have in a club statement said “change is needed now” as the Cherries look to make an immediate return to the Premier League.
“However, recent performances and results have fallen well below the board’s expectations.
We feel a change is needed now in order to give the club the best possible chance of achieving the goals that were clearly set out last summer.”
The Cherries have also thanked Tindall for “his services” after a 22 year stint at the club.
“We would like to place on record our thanks to Jason for his services to AFC Bournemouth over the past 22 years.
He is someone who is fondly thought of throughout the club, having played an important role in rescuing the club from its darkest days and taking it on the greatest journey it has ever had.
Jason will always be welcome at Vitality Stadium and we would like to wish him every success for the future.”
The former defender was promoted from his position as assistant manager by Bournemouth, following the club’s relegation from the Premier League.
Tindall, 43, took the reigns from club legend Eddie Howe after he decided to walk away from the job after eight years in charge, last August.
The sacking brings an end Tindall’s time with Bournemouth – where he has served as both a player – making 171 appearances for the club – and coach over the last 22 years.
Newly appointed first-team coach Jonathan Woodgate is favourite to get the job, with Aston Villa assistant manager John Terry also linked.
Bournemouth’s next Championship fixture is a home fixture against Birmingham City on Saturday.
