Sheffield Wednesday have sacked manager Chris Turner.
Turner has been sacked after a disappointing start to the season
He was dismissed following the Owls' 1-0 home defeat by Bournemouth on Saturday, which left them with 12 points from their first nine games.
Wednesday chairman Dave Allen said: "It's unfortunate, but I'm afraid we're parting company with Chris Turner.
"He knew that we had to do well over this game and the next game at Wrexham. The pressure was on but neither the team nor Chris delivered."
Allen added: "I'd said we had to get nine points out of those three games to get us on two
points per game, which would get us out of this division.
"We have to go forward and to do that we have to part company.
"That's the position as of now, we shall hopefully be making a new appointment next week.
"There is no one person we have decided on at this moment in time, we shall be interviewing two or three people next week."
Turner arrived to replace Terry Yorath in November 2002, after a successful spell in charge of Hartlepool United.
But he was unable to prevent relegation from the old Division One that season, and the Owls finished a disappointing 16th in Division Two last season.
