Harry Kenny will leave his post at Bray Wanderers at the end of the current Airtricity League Premeier Division.
Statements from the club and Kenny himself confirmed he will step away once the Seagulls wrap up the campaign. Bray played out a thrilling 3-3 draw with Galway United at the Carlisle Grounds on Saturday evening, with the Tribesmen missing a 90th-minute penalty to win it.
That result leaves Bray fifth with three games to go, as a traumatic season fizzles out, and it was confirmed afterwards that Kenny had resigned.
He took the reins a year and a half ago, but after a tumultuous campaign, plague by off-field problems, Kenny has called it a day.
"His efforts were derailed by events outside his control - the financial issues of July which were subsequently settled," a Bray statement said.
"We are disappointed that a coach who has achieved so much for the club has to resign but we are very conscious of the circumstances and conditions under which he has had to make this decision.
"He has brought great honour and success to our club and has been the model coach since his appointment.
"Harry will always be welcome here and we will always remember the new impetus he brought to our club.
"We thank him and wish him and his family every success in the future."

Kenny said he'll now be focusing on his player development role with the FAI, adding: "I have had two happy and relatively successful years at Bray. Naturally, I regret that we did not achieve more in competition but progress has been steady and we are currently knocking on the door of European football.
"For me, a stage has been reached where I believe it important to give undivided attention to my role at the FAI.
"I will always recall with gratitude and fondness the respect and many kindnesses shown to me by supporters, players, board and backroom staff of the club."
