Schalke have sacked head coach Domenico Tedesco two days after their 7-0 thrashing to Manchester City.
The defeat in Manchester in the second leg of their last-16 Champions League tie was their fifth defeat in a row.
Schalke have not won a league game since January 20 and have slipped to 14th in the Bundesliga table.
In the aftermath of the heavy defeat, Tedeso ruled out resigning, saying: "I haven't given a second thought to changing anything on my side.
"I am proud, even now, to be coach of Schalke 04. Even in these difficult times, I like being here and giving my all."
Huub Stevens and Mike Buskens will take charge of the team against RB Leipzig this weekend.
