Inverness Caledonian Thistle have confirmed the departure of assistant manager Russell Latapy.
John Hughes, the manager, said recently the former Hibernian, Rangers, Falkirk midfielder might move on to manage a team himself.
Hughes could now appoint his former Falkirk and Hibs assistant Brian Rice, who has been at recent pre-season games.
Latapy said: “My journey here has been fantastic and I have enjoyed every minute of my time in Inverness culminating in us finishing third in the SPFL and winning the William Hill Scottish Cup, a massive achievement for any club let all alone ICTFC.
“I have never hidden my ambition to one day be my own man in management terms and I believe now is the time. I would like to thank the supporters, players and all the staff for their support during my time at the club, including John for giving me the opportunity.”
