Ghana fired coach Milovan Rajevac after its exit from the group stage at the African Cup of Nations.

The Black Stars will look to hire a replacement before their two-leg World Cup playoff against Nigeria in March.

The decision to remove Rajevac from his post was taken late Wednesday.

Four-time champion Ghana finished in last place in its group at the African Cup after collecting one point from games against Morocco, Gabon and Comoros.

The 3-2 loss to tournament debutant Comoros in their final group match was one of the biggest shocks in the competition’s history.

Rajevac was hired in September for a second spell in charge of the national team. The Serbian coach also led Ghana from 2008-10, guiding the team to the quarterfinals of the World Cup in 2010.
