The Black Cats have confirmed the 41-year-old former Darlington manager, who joined the club a year ago, has left.
However, his departure was reportedly an Academy decision and not part of new manager Paolo Di Canio's plans for an overhaul of the senior set-up.
Sunderland recently dispensed with the services of chief scout Bryan "Pop" Robson, while Italian Roberto Di Fanti is expected to be appointed director of football in due course.
