Scolari, 63, had endured a poor season with the Sao Paulo side, and, after discussions with the club board, the former Brazil coach was relieved of his duties when a 3-1 defeat to Vasco de Gama left them second from bottom.
Palmeiras, who have the most league titles in Brazilian league history, have lost 14 of their 24 games this season, leaving them seven points adrift of safety.
