Sol Campbell has parted company with Macclesfield by mutual consent following eight months in charge of the League Two club.
The 44-year-old’s departure comes just two games into the new season, with the Silkmen sitting eighth on three points having beaten Leyton Orient 3-0 on Saturday.
He becomes the first manager in any of England’s top four divisions to leave his post this season.
“Macclesfield Town provided me with a great beginning in the managerial side of the game, as well as a fantastic learning curve which I am truly grateful for,” said the former England defender.
“I would like to thank all the players and staff for their support during my time at the Moss Rose and also all the loyal fans, whose belief at the end of last season ultimately played a tangible role in our success.”
