Kenny Lowe joked he would only change "getting sacked" as he reflected on the end of a four-and-a-half-year stint in charge of Perth Glory.
The club announced in a statement on Friday they would "seek a fresh approach" to the Hyundai A-League head coach role that sees Lowe become technical director of their academy.
In a post on Twitter, the affable Englishman shared thanks to Glory's management for a "rollercoaster ride" and said he exited the position with happy memories.
"I can honestly say it's been a pleasure working with everyone in the office and the on the grass," Lowe wrote.
"There have been a few cup finals, a few finals, the odd journey to the cells, a few heartaches and some laughs along the way.
"But the biggest thing for me to take out of all this is I genuinely believe I have made a fair few friends along the journey and for that alone I would not change one thing... apart from getting sacked ha ha ha !!!!"
Glory have confirmed the process for a new appointment will commence immediately.
