“Results this season have been disappointing and, while this was an incredibly difficult decision, with eight crucial games of the campaign remaining,
we feel a change is needed to give the squad the best possible chance of retaining its Premier League status,” said the chairman, Alan Pace.
“The process of replacing Sean has begun and further announcements will be made to supporters in due course.”
Burnley said Sunday’s game at West Ham would be overseen by the under-23s coach Mike Jackson with assistance from the academy director Paul Jenkins,
“We would like to place on record our sincere thanks to Sean and his staff for their achievements at the club over the last decade,” Pace said.
“During his time at Turf Moor, Sean has been a credit both on and off the pitch, respected by players, staff, supporters, and the wider football community.”
