The former Senior Director of Competitive Analysis, Research and Innovation with the US Olympic Committee arrived at Finch Farm in early January last year as part of an innovative change in approach to developing the club's young talent.
A statement from Everton today said: “Peter has left club to pursue other opportunities. We wish him the best in future pursuits.”
The Liverpool Echo report that Everton appointed Dave Adams as their new Head of Academy coaching last week and that Joel Waldron, the Academy head of operations, is likely to be given an enhanced role.
MailOnline, meanwhile, contend that Vint's departure was related to philosophical differences between his style and those of other members of the coaching staff.
Additionally Vint's son, who had a trial with the Blues, is set to join Manchester United's youth academy.

I won't lose too much sleep over this.

Ah well... off with the "amateurs" regime and on with "Ronald's Revolution".

He was a slightly left-field appointment to start off with and with no previous knowledge of the game probably didn't help his cause. Southampton tried it with Clive Woodward and even with the slight similarities of the sports, that didn't last long either. With these new appointments that have come in recently, I can imagine that he probably won't be replaced.

Coming from the States, he was on a hiding to nothing and old pros rejecting his kid only speeded up his departure... er... resignation!

Was it he wasn't a footie man? So what? Southgate invited Jones, the coach of the England Rugby team,to address the England football team which the players, according to reports, found inspirational.
A Senior Director with the US Olympic Committee working with Everton Football Club would have shown we were looking to the future and taking academy business seriously.
We are too full of ex-Everton players holding ambassadorial or coaching roles because... well... they are ex-Everton players.
This is no longer good enough. It would be interesting to know what the manager thinks of this development.

Everton's academy left in crisis as Dave Adams becomes second coach to leave in 48 hours... just seven days since being appointed.
What is going on?

I mean, would the number of touchdowns or ice hockey "slams" be relevant to football statistics? (Crude example, but you know what I mean...)
