Derby County have parted company with manager Nigel Pearson, the clubs official website has confirmed.
It marks the end of an unhappy spell at the Ipro Stadium for Pearson, who has been relieved of his duties after being suspended by the club a few weeks ago.
The club statement confirms that disciplinary action against Pearson has now ceased, and that the decision is mutual between both parties.
Pearson leaves Derby after only taking over in the summer, and leaves the club 20th in the Championship table after only 2 wins from their opening 10 matches.
The former Leicester and Hull City manager was expected to bring some steel to the Rams and guide them towards a promotion push after what has been a disappointing few seasons for the Midlands club as they look to get back to the Premier League.
Chairman Mel Morris will now set his sights on another new manager for the Rams.
