HULL, England (AP) Former Russia coach Leonid Slutsky’s first managerial role in English soccer lasted less than six months.

Second-tier Hull said Sunday that Slutsky has left his position by mutual consent. Hull is in 20th place in the 24-team League Championship and is on an eight-game winless run.

Slutsky took charge of Hull in June and was seeking to become the first Russian coach to manage in the Premier League.
