Former Norwich City assistant manager Colin Calderwood has been sacked as Cambridge United boss.
The U's are winless in five matches in League Two and have slipped down to 18th in the table. A 4-0 defeat to Salford City on Tuesday evening was the final nail in the coffin for the Scot.
Calderwood joined City from Birmingham City alongside Chris Hughton, and was his number two for the duration of his time at Carrow Road.
He went onto assist Steve Bruce at Aston Villa before being appointed manager of Cambridge back in December 2018.
City legend Wes Hoolahan was training with the U's in the summer, but the Irish international opted to join Australian side Newcastle Jets.
