"This has been an enormously difficult decision for the club," chief executive Mark Jenkins said in a statement.

"After discussions with our owners, the difficult decision to make a change was taken. Darren's dedication over the last 12 months is not underestimated and there will always be a welcome for him at the Hawthorns.

"But we have to place the club's best interests at the forefront of our thinking and we must do everything we can to try to deliver the promotion we have targeted."
