Sunderland manager David Moyes has resigned following the club’s relegation from the Premier League.
Moyes, 54, informed chairman Ellis Short of his decision to step down at a meeting in London on Monday.
“I wish the players and my successor well in their efforts towards promotion back to the Premier League,” said Moyes.
Former Everton and Manchester United boss Moyes took charge in July last year, after Sam Allardyce left to become England manager.
Sunderland finished bottom of the table this season with 24 points, having won only six games.
