On Tuesday evening, Ligue 2 side SM Caen announced the decision to part company with manager Pascal Dupraz.
The Normandy side has had just one league win since December, with the enigmatic Dupraz struggling to create a clear playing identity for the Olivier Pickeu-led project.
Dupraz, ex-Toulouse and Evian boss, leaves a position that he had held since October 2019.
Caen sit 14th in Ligue 2, 5 points clear of the relegation/promotion play-off spot.
Dupraz is immediately replaced by Fabrice Vandeputte as head coach, who will work with an assistant in the form of Cédric Hengbart.
