Chatham have parted company with Darren Anslow in the wake of their 7-0 defeat to Hastings United.
The Ryman League, Division 1 South side are sitting in the drop zone and have had no wins in seven games, in all competitions.
They conceded six goals in the final 20 minutes against Hastings.
Anslow, the former Deal Town manager, was busy reshaping the playing squad and was hoping for more time to start turning results around.
But Chatham have decided they want a new man at the helm.
Anslow said: “Apart from three or four of them they chucked the towel in after conceding the first goal and I was looking forward to a spell after Monday’s game (against Faversham) to change some of the players.
“I accept the decision, the last two games haven’t been good enough, but I needed time to get rid of some of the players. You can’t just be gung-ho about it.
“To stay up would have been do-able but I asked them (the Chatham board) after Saturday’s game if they wanted to make a change and they did, so I can do no more.”
Anslow replaced Tony Beckingham at the end of September, having previously been the assistant manager.
He said: “I had six or seven weeks and that’s not enough. It’s impossible to turn it around in that time.
“I leave with no grudges, I have nothing against the club and I wish them well.”
Beckingham came in at the start of the season, replacing Kevin Horlock, who in turn was only manager after replacing long-serving Kevin Watson in October last year.
