Hull are 20th in the table and have lost their last four matches, conceding 11 goals and scoring just one. Arveladze guided the Tigers to safety last season, but the poor start to the season has cost him his job, according to the BBC.
Arveladze was a successful footballer who played with top European clubs like Ajax Amsterdam and Rangers. Assistant head coach Peter van der Veen has also followed him through the exit door.
Hull City's reason for sacking Arveladze
"During the international break, we had a number of meetings with Arveladze to discuss the direction of the team and the future of the club, As these meetings went on, it became clear our views weren’t aligned so we have made the decision to part ways. Arveladze and Peter leave with our thanks, greatest respect and fond wishes for the future.”
First-team coach Andy Dawson will take over as interim head coach.
“Our focus is now supporting Andy and the squad and finding the best possible candidate to drive this club forward."
According to the BBC, the 49-year-old enjoyed a hugely successful career, with 26 goals in 61 international matches with Georgia. He also won league titles in Scotland, the Netherlands and his home country with Dinamo Tbilisi.
