Howe managed Bournemouth in more than 450 games across two spells at the Vitality Stadium spanning more than a decade
Eddie Howe left his job as Bournemouth manager by mutual consent Saturday, saying it was the right time for the club to have a change following their relegation from the Premier League.
Bournemouth’s five-year stint in the top division ended on the final day of the season after they finished third-bottom in the standing with 34 points.
Howe, 42, departed after a discussion with Bournemouth officials, the club announced in a statement.
Howe managed Bournemouth in more than 450 games across two spells at the Vitality Stadium spanning more than a decade.
The Englishman was initially appointed as a caretaker manager in December 2008, and defied expectations to secure the club’s safety in League Two despite starting the season on -17 points.
He then went on to win promotion to League One the following season.
After a brief spell as Burnley manager, Howe returned to guide the Cherries to the Premier League in 2015, where they remained for five seasons.
