The Dark Blues confirmed the information forward of Sunday’s away journey to Livingston, which will probably be his final in cost.
McGhee has overseen only one win – over Hibs this week – and says he’ll hand over the reins to a ‘younger coach’ after the membership’s secon-tier destiny was sealed.
“When we took the job we had a real belief that we could stay in the division and we are disappointed that we did not achieve that target,” McGhee stated in a membership web site assertion. “My role at the club was that of a manager with Simon [Rusk] working as the coach alongside me. The Championship is a division that I feel is suited to a younger coach, one with energy, that is what the players deserve. I’m not sure my role is relevant in that environment.”
“I would also like to thank John for the opportunity, the players and staff for their commitment, and the fans for their support during my time in charge. I wish the club every success in the future.”
Rusk, McGhee’s assistant, will even depart to take up a brand new job with the English FA. The duo had been in cost at Stockport County in a task reversal earlier than transferring north to interchange James McPake in February, although McGhee started within the stand, finishing a earlier SFA dug-out ban.
