“Head of Club Strategy Oleg Yarovinsky has also left his role at the KCOM Stadium.”
Commenting on his departure Slutsky said: “I would like to really thank everyone associated with Hull City from the players and staff to the owner and especially the fans.
“I am very proud to have been through this experience, it was challenging but a very exciting time for me.
“Hull City will always be a part of my heart and I wish the team all the very best for the future.”
Meanwhile the process to recruit a new Head Coach is underway.
