Girardi had been spotted at Yankee Stadium twice this week, with the team confirming their parting in a news release on Thursday morning.
Yankees general manager Brian Cashman's contract is up, too, but it's expected that the will return to see through the team's rapid rebuild that started at the 2016 trade deadline.
The New York Yankees exceeded expectations in 2017, finishing 91-71 and advancing to Game 7 of the American League Championship Series before losing to the Houston Astros. Girardi finishes up his 10-year tenure in NY with a 910-710 managerial record and one World Series championship (2009).
Girardi is from East Peoria and was a former play for both the Chicago Cubs and the St. Louis Cardinals.
After that game, Girardi accepted responsibility for not challenging a call that would have ended an inning with his team up five runs rather than load the bases and lead to the Yankees' biggest blown lead in a playoff game since 2002.
"He has a tireless work ethic, and put his heart into every game he managed over the last decade", Cashman said.

What's the next move for Girardi? "It's a hard day for me", he said then. It's not just what you want out of life.
Rob Thomson, who is the bench coach for the Yankees is a prime choice, but it isn't certain whether the Yankees will go with a lower-profile candidate.
