Former England spinner John Emburey has left Middlesex to pursue a more hands-on coaching role.
Chief executive Vinny Codrington said Emburey had left by mutual consent after the club wanted to move him into a more administrative role.
After being made director of cricket at the beginning of last season, Emburey was forced back into coaching when Richard Prybus left the club halfway through the season.
Emburey said: "I've really enjoyed my time here, but I want to continue my career in a direct coaching role. I believe I leave the club in great shape and look forward to the club's success in the future."
Emburey's name has already been linked with the vacant position at Gloucestershire following the resignation of Mark Alleyne earlier in the week.
Codrington said Emburey's role at the club was set to become more admistrative, taking him away from the more hands-on role he enjoyed.

"After lengthy discussions with the club, it was mutually agreed that John pursue his ambitions in coaching," he said.
"He leaves behind a strong coaching team and a squad under Ed Smith more than capable of competing for all four domestic competitions.
