CONAKRY, Guinea (AP) - Guinea’s football federation says Michel Dussuyer has quit as coach of the national team following the quarterfinal exit at the African Cup of Nations.

The federation also said it had fired the coaching and medical staff that worked with Dussuyer after they “failed in their duty.”

The Guineans were lucky to win a place in the quarterfinals in Equatorial Guinea through a drawing of lots after finishing level with Mali at the end of the group stage. Guinea then lost 3-0 to Ghana in the quarters.

Frenchman Dussuyer coached Guinea from 2010-13, then was reappointed in early 2014.

He is the second coach to leave following elimination at the African Cup. Alain Giresse left as Senegal coach after his team failed to make the second round.
