Wrexham is looking for a new manager after Dean Keates was removed from office after the club failed to reach the Vanarama National League playoffs.
The Dragons, owned by Hollywood duo Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney, missed a spot in the top seven after a 1-1 draw at Dagenham on Saturday.
Keates, his assistant Andy Davies and first-team coach Carl Darlington were all out of contract this summer and have been informed that their deals will not be renewed.

Actors Reynolds and McElhenney, who took over the club in February, said in a joint statement: ‘We would like to thank Dean, Andy and Carl for all their efforts on behalf of the club, in sometimes challenging circumstances.
‘We are committed to getting the club back to the EFL as soon as possible and we believe that a change of manager will give us the best opportunity to achieve that goal.
“Dean, Andy and Carl are always welcome at the club.”
