Less than a week after being fired as Yahoo's CEO, Carol Bartz has also resigned from the company's Board of Directors.

Carol Bartz, who has just been fired as Yahoo’s CEO last Tuesday, has also left her seat on the company’s board of directors. As noted by spokesperson, Charles Sipkin,s in an e-mail on Sunday: “On September 9, 2011, Carol Bartz resigned from the Board of Directors of Yahoo! Inc. effective immediately.”

Carol Bartz’s role as CEO ended last week when she was ousted from the position she had occupied for three years. After being fired, she conducted an interview with Fortune wherein she pointed out that she has no plans of leaving Yahoo’s board — a statement which contradicts Mr. Sipkins’ report. On the same interview, she called Yahoo’s board members as “doofuses” who “f**ked me over”.

According to some sources close to the company, Carol Bartz’s last day on Yahoo’s board was Friday.

Yahoo! Fires Chief Executive Officer Carol Bartz

Carol Bartz received a phone call from Yahoo Chairman, Roy Bostock, informing her that she was being terminated as the company's CEO.

Sources close to the company confirmed that Carol Bartz’ job as Yahoo! CEO has ended last Tuesday. She managed to send an email to all her former co-employees using her iPad telling them that her resignation was not voluntary, and that she was terminated by the company’s Chairman – Roy Bostock – through a phone call.

Carol Bartz – whose tenure was marked by poor sales revenue – lost share to competitors and several conflicts with Asian partners. She took over the position way back in January 2009. Since her term, the California-based company produced frustrated investors, and even failed to outrun Google Inc. and Facebook Inc.

As part of Yahoo’s plans of reviving their advertising rates and lost investors, they have appointed Chief Financial Officer – Tim Morse – to be the interim CEO, and asked an “executive leadership council” to help them fill the void until they found a new and permanent CEO.
