Edin Terzic has left his position as head coach of Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund.

Dortmund confirmed Terzic’s departure in a statement on their X handle on Thursday.

“Edin Terzić leaves Borussia Dortmund,” Dortmund wrote.

“The coach, who won the DFB Cup with BVB in 2021, finished runner-up in the 2023 championship and reached the 2024 Champions League final, asked BVB to terminate his contract with immediate effect.

“Borussia Dortmund agreed to the request after a joint discussion.”

Between 2010 and 2013, Terzić worked as a scout and assistant coach in the youth academy of Borussia Dortmund, reporting to first team manager Jürgen Klopp.

Terzić was an assistant coach of Slaven Bilić at Beşiktaş between 2013 and 2015 and at West Ham United from 2015 to 2017. His collaboration with Bilić started in 2012, when Terzić drafted and delivered a pre-game opponent analysis for Croatia’s group stage match against the Republic of Ireland at Euro 2012.

Satisfied with the analysis, Bilić invited him to join him as assistant coach at Lokomotiv Moscow, however, the deal eventually fell through.

Bilić once again offered Terzić the position at Beşiktaş and Terzić accepted the offer after consulting with Borussia Dortmund He followed him to West Ham United in 2015, but left the club two years later when Bilić was sacked on 6 November 2017.
