"Porto FC and Nuno Espirito Santo arrived this afternoon at an understanding to rescind the contract of the manager by mutual consent," a brief club statement read.
Porto are 27-time league champions but finished the season second-placed behind rivals Benfica, who lifted their third straight crown.
Nuno, a former goalkeeper at the club, took over for Jose Peseiro in June.
Porto reached the round-of-16 in this season's Champions League before being knocked out by eventual finalist Juventus.
