Brazilian media say the local football confederation has decided to drop Luiz Felipe Scolari as Brazil head coach.

Globo TV and other news outlets said early Monday that Scolari will not remain as coach after the national team's failure to win the World Cup at home.

Scolari said Saturday after Brazil's 3-0 loss to the Netherlands in the third-place match that he was handing over the team's command and that it would be up to the Brazil confederation to decide whether he would continue.

Globo said the confederation's official announcement would be made later Monday.

Delfim Peixoto, elected as a confederation vice presidents for 2015, confirmed the information to the UOL web news portal, saying he was told by top officials that Scolari will not stay as coach.
