Hannover 96 have parted ways with manager Tayfun Korkut, two days after a 4-0 defeat by Bayern Leverkusen.
The Bundesliga outfit have not won a game in 13 matches now and are involved in a relegation fight.
Korkut was appointed manager in January 2014 and helped the side to avoid relegation last season.
Hannover are back in a relegation scrap, just two points above the drop zone in 15th place.
The German side hope to announce a new manager before the next game.
“Hannover on Monday have put head coach Tayfun Korkut on administrative leave,” the club said in a statement that was quoted by the Guardian.
The 40-year-old coach became the first Turkish international to take over a Bundesliga club when he was appointed Hannover manager last season.
It is the first senior coaching job for the former Fenerbahçe midfielder who previously worked as a youth team coach at Real Sociedad, Hoffenheim and VfB Stuttgart.
