Graham Alexander has been sacked by Scunthorpe United, following Saturday's 1-1 draw with Rochdale.
Scunthorpe, who are without a win in their previous seven games, have also parted company with assistant manager Neil McDonald.
A club statement read: "Scunthorpe United FC can confirm that Manager Graham Alexander and Assistant Manager Neil McDonald have this evening both been relieved of their duties.
"The Club would wish to place on record their appreciation of Graham's efforts during his two years at Glanford Park."
Alexander joined the club in 2016, replacing the outgoing Mark Robins, having previously been in-charge at Fleetwood and Preston.
With 11 games remaining of their League One campaign, Scunthorpe are fifth but sit 27 points adrift of second-placed Shrewsbury in the automatic promotion places.
