Notts County decide to sack manager Ricardo Moniz
Notts County have parted company with manager Ricardo Moniz.
Coaches Dave Kevan and Dean Yates have also left the League Two club.
The Magpies have won just two league games since October and sit 15th in the table following their relegation from League One last season.
Academy boss Mick Halsall and under-21 team coach Richard Dryden will take interim charge of the first team, the club said in a statement.
Former Red Bull Salzburg and 1860 Munich boss Moniz lasted under nine months at Meadow Lane, having been appointed in April.
County chairman Ray Trew said: "I made it clear when appointing Ricardo that I wanted someone who would bring an exciting, attacking brand of football to Meadow Lane and I think it would be fair to say that in part he has done this, with some eye-catching attacking play on show at times this season.
"However, whilst showing considerable flair at times, particularly here at home, I feel that we have lacked a level of discipline and organisation in our defensive play throughout the season which has undermined our efforts and our right to play this free-flowing attacking style."
Moniz's last match in charge was a 2-2 draw against Morecambe on Monday.
Trew added: "My goal for this club is, and always has been, to improve and whilst I by no means want to keep chopping and changing managers, I refuse to let us stagnate and I feel that the time is right for a new approach to reignite our season and get us back on track to where we want and need to be."
