The 36-year-old departs Leylands Park with Hill 12th in the division.
In a statement posted on Burgess Hill’s website, chairman Vince Alfieri said: “I’ve loved every minute working with Dean and am really sorry to see him go. I wish him nothing but success for the future.”
But, posting on X, Cox said he was leaving the role due to a change of direction at the Mid Sussex club.
He tweeted: “Firstly would like to thank @CChenzo78 [Alfieri] for giving me the opportunity to come in and be manager at @Official_BHTFC.
“I also thank the fans for getting behind me from day one. But things become clear that the direction was changing to something I didn’t want.”
Burgess Hill have thanked Cox for all his efforts since joining the club in the summer and have wished him well for the future.
A further announcement will follow this evening with regards to the first team management position at the Hillians.
