KARACHI: Borussia Dortmund parted ways with Marco Rose after one season as head coach.
Rose guided Dortmund to second place in the Bundesliga after signing from Borussia Monchengladbach, eight points behind winners Bayern Munich.
They were knocked out of the German Cup by second-tier St Pauli.
Dortmund stated that the makeup of the future coaching team will be discussed in the coming days.
Rose managed 47 games, winning 27 and losing 16 of them.
"This day is not an easy one for any of us because the mutual respect among each other was, is, and remains great," said Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke.
"After a season that was unsatisfactory for various reasons, we had to realise that we didn't get the most out of our opportunities in many areas."
Dortmund were ousted from the Champions League after placing third in their group behind Ajax and Sporting Lisbon, and Rangers eliminated them from the Europa League.
