Hull have relieved manager Phil Brown of his duties and placed him on gardening leave with immediate effect, the Barclays Premier League club have confirmed.
Hull lost 2-1 at home to Arsenal on Saturday with Nicklas Bendtner scoring a last-gasp winner.
The defeat left the Tigers second bottom of the standings, three points from safety. A statement on the club's official website said Brian Horton and Steve Parkin would take charge of the first team until further notice.
