Dundee United and Mixu Paatelainen part company
Mixu Paatelainen has left Dundee Utd with immediate effect after discussions over a financial package for his departure were concluded on Wednesday.
The Finn met chairman Stephen Thompson on Tuesday following their relegation from the Scottish Premiership.
United will now begin the search for a new head coach, with Raith Rovers boss Ray McKinnon an early favourite.
"I would like to thank the players, staff and supporters," Paatelainen said after his departure was confirmed.
"It has been a difficult winter and the challenge was huge but nevertheless I have enjoyed every day working for the club and with this group of players".
