Crystal Palace have confirmed the departures of Orlando Trustfull, Sammy Lee and Ryland Morgans following the appointment of Roy Hodgson as manager.
Hodgson succeeded Frank de Boer as Palace boss earlier this week and will take charge of his first game on Saturday against Southampton, live on Sky Sports Premier League.
Former England boss Hodgson has been joined at Selhurst Park by long-time assistant Ray Lewington, meaning Trustfull and Lee have been deemed surplus to requirements.
Trustfull was assistant to De Boer at both Ajax and Inter Milan.
Lee was brought to Palace by Sam Allardyce last December and was retained once De Boer took over.
Morgans was also brought to Palace by Allardyce last January and has worked as the club's head of performance.
A statement from the club said: "Following the appointments of Roy Hodgson as manager and Ray Lewington as assistant manager, we can confirm that Orlando Trustfull, Sammy Lee and Ryland Morgans have left the club.
"We would like to thank Orlando, Sammy and Ryland for their efforts during their time in south London, and wish them all the very best for the future."
Palace have bolstered their backroom staff with the appointment of former Republic of Ireland midfielder Steven Reid as a first-team coach.
The 36-year-old has worked on the Reading coaching staff for the past two years after joining them from Burnley following his retirement from playing.
