Saints were beaten 3-0 at Newcastle on Saturday to leave them just one place and one point above the relegation zone.
A Southampton statement read: “We would like to place on record our thanks to Mauricio, Carlos and Xavier for their efforts during their time with Southampton, and wish them well for the future.
“The club will look to appoint a new management team as soon as possible, with the search for a replacement already under way.”
