Billy Brown: Bringing to an end a 10-month spell at Easter Road
Hibernian have confirmed that assistant manager Billy Brown will vacate his post when his current contract comes to an end on Saturday.
News of his departure brings to an end a 10-month spell with the Edinburgh-based club.
Brown arrived at Easter Road in September 2011 and briefly took in a stint as a caretaker boss before Pat Fenlon was appointed as Colin Calderwood's successor.
He resumed his role as number two during Fenlon's time at the helm.
Brown will, however, be heading out of the club before the 2012/13 Scottish Premier League campaign gets underway.
A statement released by Hibs read: "Hibernian today (Friday) confirmed that Billy Brown will be leaving the club when his contract expires on 30 June 2012.
"Brown was appointed assistant manager in September 2011 and during his time at Easter Road was briefly placed in temporary charge of first team affairs in November as caretaker boss.
"The club would like to thank Billy for the effort, knowledge and commitment he gave during his time at Hibernian and wishes him every success in the future."
