"I'm sure that like me they looked forward to a season in League One following last season's promotion, only to be disappointed.
"I would also like to thank them for their support for me over the years and hope that support will continue for the club, the new manager and the players."
Former Bulls player-coach Phil Robinson told BBC Hereford & Worcester: "I am surprised because I know how much he loves the day-to-day involvement with the players but I also know how much work goes into keeping a club the size of Hereford running and financially stable.
"Combing both must be an incredibly difficult job and he's done it for so long that maybe he needs to concentrate on he running of the club himself.
"I know he's put an enormous effort into the club and I'd like to think the supporters are proud of what he's achieved there, so I don't think he'd want to give up on that too soon."
