Joachim Low will step down from the German national team helm after this summer's Euro 2020 tournament, the 61-year-old bringing an end to his 15-year reign.
Assistant to Jurgen Klinsmann at the 2006 World Cup, Low then took the top job himself, winning the ultimate prize in world football in Brazil in 2014.
Few could have foreseen Germany's fall from grace four years later, exiting the World Cup at the group stage and results since then in the Nations League have been inconsistent and, in the case of a 6-0 hammering by Spain, humiliating.
Low's team are in Group F for the Euro finals, heavyweights France and Portugal joining them along with Hungary.
They start their qualifying campaign for next year's World Cup later this month with matches against Iceland, Romania and North Macedonia.
