The club issued a statement on Thursday morning saying the departure was "by mutual consent."

It was Devine's second spell in charge having returned to the Brandywell in November, 2018 after the sacking of Kenny Shiels.
Derry qualified for Europe in Devine's first season but just avoided relegation last year and the struggles continued in the new campaign.
They go to Sligo on Saturday.
There's also a high-profile departure in the Irish League - striker Andy Waterworth has confirmed he's leaving Linfield at the end of the season after eight years with the club.
The 35-year-old recognises there won't be a role for him in the new full-time set-up at Windsor Park.
But he intends to continue playing with another club and could combine that with a coaching position.
Northern Ireland striker Kyle Lafferty has hit a hat-trick for Kilmarnock - in just 11 minutes.
It secured a 3-0 win over Dundee United on Wednesday night and boosted Killie's hopes of Scottish Premiership survival.
And three of Kenny Shiels' Northern Ireland women stars are moving to Solitude:
