The Dark Blues confirmed the news ahead of Sunday’s away game after Livingston, who will be his last manager.
McGhee has overseen just one win – this week against Hibs – and says he will hand the reins to a “younger manager” after the club’s fate was sealed in the Second Division.
“When we took the job we had a strong belief that we could stay in the division and we are disappointed that we did not achieve that goal,” McGhee said in a statement on the club’s website. “My role at the club was that of manager with Simon [Rusk] works next to me as a coach. The Championship is a division that I think suits a younger coach, one with energy, that’s what the players deserve. I’m not sure if my role is relevant in this environment.”
“I would also like to thank John for the opportunity, the players and staff for their dedication and the fans for their support during my tenure. I wish the club every success for the future.”
Rusk, McGhee’s assistant, will also leave to take up a new post with the Football Association. The duo were in charge in a Stockport County role reversal before moving north in February to replace James McPake, though McGhee started in the stands and completed a previous SFA standoff ban.
Dundee will add their new boss as part of a reorganization from Dens Park, which includes technical director Gordon Strachan moving to the role of director of football.
