According to the Independent -

Luton Town have today come to a mutual agreement with Graeme Jones on the termination of his contract as first-team manager.

"Given the current circumstances affecting not only football but the world as whole, the club are taking an early move to restructure in order to reduce its cost base and to create efficiencies within the football department.

Assistant manager Gary Brabin, first-team coach Inigo Idiakez and technical goalkeeping coach Imanol Etxeberria also had their contracts terminated with immediate effect.
A touch of the blame culture here I think. Luton were firmly entrenched in the relegation zone and instead of blaming the management, they wimped out, 'the board would like to place on record their thanks to Graeme for his efforts over the last twelve months. We wish him and his family well during these difficult times for everyone, and in his future career. We would also like to thank all three for their service to the club and wish them all well for the future.'
Instead they have blamed the financial climate. It probably is the correct decision but they could at least have come out and been honest about things!
