Jonathan Woodgate will leave Bournemouth when his contract expires with the club set to appoint Scott Parker as manager.
The former Real Madrid and Leeds defender replaced Jason Tindall in February on a short-term basis.
The Cherries reached the Championship play-offs, but were beaten by Brentford.
The club confirmed on Sunday that Woodgate, and first-team coach Joe Jordan, would leave the club when their contracts ran out on Wednesday.
“I cannot thank Jonathan enough for the job he has done over the past four-and-a-half months,” said AFC Bournemouth chief executive Neill Blake.
“He came into the club at a difficult moment, was asked to take charge of the team very soon after arriving and did so with great maturity, providing the stability we needed at such a crucial time.”
Bournemouth are keen on hiring current Fulham boss Parker as his replacement, as reported by talkSPORT earlier this month.
The Cottagers and Parker and are believed to be in talks about a mutual termination of his contract.
Fulham were relegated from the Premier League last season and the former midfielder still has two years left on his deal.
Sky Sports report that the two parties are likely to conclude their negotiations in the next 24 to 48 hours.
Fulham are understood to have already began their search for a new head coach.
