Danny Cowley and his brother Nicky have been removed from their positions.
Danny Cowley has been sacked as manager of Huddersfield Town less than 48 hours after securing their Championship status.
Cowley and his brother Nicky arrived in September when the club had just one point from their first 8 games.
Safety was all but secured with a 2-1 win over West Brom on Friday night that also saw Leeds promoted back to the Premier League.

Assistant Manager Nicky Cowley will also depart the Club immediately.
It's a decision that has received a mixed reception from the fans, with some even saying it's the end of their support for the club.
Here's some of the reaction from the club's faithful:
Underperformed with that squad. Makes sense— JBH (@JBH_swfc) July 19, 2020
everyone is kicking off but when we lost to Luton alot wanted them sacked,that's the problem with today's era of football fans their all fickle! I'm not entirely happy with the decision but I support the football club,managers,players come and go. Also let's not jump the gun....— Steve Weston (@SteveWe22531823) July 19, 2020
Just had to check it wasn’t April 1st, I mean really?!?!— Matthew Kaye (@MatthewK95) July 19, 2020
Please tell me this is a wind up.— Kevin Burns (@KevinBurns63) July 19, 2020
That seems a very odd decision, from close to or distant from the club.— Steve Dolman (@Peakfanblog) July 19, 2020
He didn't exactly inherit a squad of world beaters, and staying up had to be the goal.
Wont be out of work for long
The club say they are not seeking applications for the vacant position, suggesting they may already have a successor lined up.
