"Bath Rugby can today confirm that Gary Gold has left the Club with immediate effect," read a statement released by the Premiership outfit.
"The decision was taken following a re-structure in the rugby department and with the best interests of both Gary and the Club in mind.
"No further comment will be made until it is appropriate."
