Sligo Rovers' under-19s manager Brian Dorrian will step into the role of interim senior manager.
The Bit O' Red have confirmed that he will replace Gerard Lyttle whose contract has not been renewed as the club announced last night. Lyttle had been in charge of the Bit O' Red since 2017.
Sligo Rovers are currently eighth in the 10-team SSE Airtricity League Premier Division, 11 points clear of ninth placed Limerick.
In a statement, the club said: "Sligo Rovers can confirm that Under-19 manager Brian Dorrian will take charge of the team for the final nine days of the SSE Airtricity Premier Division.
"Dorrian, who has been part of the club's underage management for several seasons, will take training from this morning and the games against Dundalk on Friday, Bohemians in The Showgrounds on Monday and Shamrock Rovers on Friday 26 October, also in The Showgrounds.
"The club are grateful to Brian for agreeing to the role and encourage all our supporters to get behind him and the players as they have done throughout this season for the final three games of 2018."
