Crawley Town head coach Dermot Drummy has left the club by mutual consent with their Sky Bet League Two status now secured for next season.
Crawley have struggled this season and currently lie 21st in the table, seven points clear of the relegation places.
With just one game remaining this weekend, they cannot go down but six games without a win have seen Drummy vacate his post.
A club statement read: "Crawley Town have today parted company with head coach Dermot Drummy and his assistant Matt Gray by mutual consent.
"The club would like to thank Dermot and Matt for their hard work in the last 13 months and wish them all the best for their future careers.
"No further statement from the club will be made today, but club owner Ziya Eren will be holding a media conference tomorrow."
Former Chelsea youth coach Drummy was appointed by Crawley in April last year as a replacement for Mark Yates and joined with the club sitting 18th in the standings. They eventually finished 20th.
Crawley could go as high as 17th in this year's final table but with just 15 wins in Drummy's tenure - a return of only 29 per cent - Eren will now make another change.
