Stuart McCall's 133-game reign as City boss is over.
McCall will officially step down on Monday when he meets joint-chairman Julian Rhodes.
But the Bantams legend has made it clear that his mind is made up.
Speaking after today's 1-0 home loss to Bury, McCall said: "It's time for somebody else to come in and take up the reins and hopefully do well.
"I've been very fortunate as a player to have had two great spells here. I've been very fortunate to have the career I've had.
"I've been honoured to be here and the support I've had from everyone has been fantastic.
"Today would have been a defining line in the season for me. If we had beaten Bury, the dream of making seventh place would have been on.
"The form has been okay, the results haven't been good enough. It's just not meant to be.
"It's really hard because I came with hopes and aspirations of fulfilling a lot of people's dreams."
