Hull FC have parted company with their Australian coach, Peter Sharp, by mutual consent, the English Super League club has announced.

The 53-year-old Sharp, who was in his third season with the club, will leave immediately while assistant Richard Agar takes charge temporarily.

The move comes after Hull FC lost 34-26 at Harlequins on Sunday to leave them 11th on the 12-team table.

Hull FC chief executive James Rule said the club's focus would be on preparing for this weekend's match against St Helens and the Carnegie Challenge Cup quarter-final against Bradford Bulls the following week.

"On behalf of the board of directors, staff and players at Hull FC I would like to thank Peter for his contribution to the club and wish him the best of luck in his future career," Rule told the club's website.

The former Northern Eagles coach took over at Hull from John Kear in April 2006 and found success early, guiding the team to 14 wins from his first 17 matches and earning them a second-placed finish.
