Bryan Redpath has left his coaching role at Sale Sharks with immediate effect, the Aviva Premiership side announced on their website.
The 43-year-old Scot - who has been linked with the vacant post at Yorkshire Carnegie – ends an eight-year association with the Aviva Premiership side, having spent five years with them as a player and three as a coach.
Redpath returned to Sale in June 2012 as director of rugby after starting a coaching career at Gloucester and progressing to the top job at Kingsholm.
But with Sale struggling four months into Redpath’s tenure, he was removed from the director of rugby role at the Salford-based side and has since been operating as head coach.
“I would like to thank the owners, coaches, players and staff for all their help and support since I returned to the club in 2012. Also to the supporters who have been great with me both as a player and as a coach,” Redpath said.
