Dundee United have confirmed tonight that Liam Fox has left his position as head coach by ‘mutual agreement’, with the side sitting bottom of the Scottish Premiership.
After a week which saw fans voice their discontent by launching a protest at the club’s AGM, the final straw for the board appears to have been Saturday’s 4-0 loss at the hands of fellow strugglers Ross County.
His departure comes following public assurances from boardroom level that Fox was the right man to keep United in the division, however the news tonight leaves the Tannadice side searching for their third manager of the season as they look to beat the drop.
A statement on the club’s website read:
“Dundee United can tonight confirm that we have parted company with Liam Fox who leaves his role as head coach by mutual agreement.”
“The Board would like to thank Liam for all his efforts and professionalism during his time as Assistant Head Coach last season and this season during his tenure as Head Coach.”
“An announcement as to a new Head Coach will be made in the near future and we will make no further statement at this time.”
