Leeds have confirmed Michael Skubala has left his role as coach of the club's under-21 side to become head coach at Lincoln City.
"Whilst everyone is disappointed to see a coach of Skubala’s quality leave the club, we are proud to see another member of staff progress from our academy at Thorp Arch, into an English Football League first team role," the club said.
"Talented coaching duo Scott Gardner and Rob Etherington will now take up new positions at the club on an interim basis. Gardner will step up from under-18s head coach to lead the under-21s, with Etherington moving from under-18s assistant coach to become under-18s head coach.
"Everyone at Leeds United would like to thank Michael for his effort and time spent developing players, and for taking over as interim head coach of the first team in difficult circumstances last season."
