Luiz Felipe Scolari
From TheChels.info - The Chelsea Football Club Wiki
Luiz Felipe Scolari (born 9 November 1948) is a Brazilian coach who was manager of Chelsea from July 2008 to February 2009.
Prior to joining Chelsea, Scolari had a colourful career, managing some 15 clubs in three continents. He had his greatest success with the Brazilian national team, leading them to an unexpected World Cup triumph in 2002. At club level, he had his most successful spells with Gremio and Palmeiras, winning the Copa Libertadoras and various other trophies with each. He managed the Portuguese national team from 2003 to 2008, leading them to the final of Euro 2004, where they lost to Greece.
Scolari was confirmed as the next manager of Chelsea on 11 June 2008, during Euro 2008, and formally took charge of the team on 1 July. His first signing was Deco, who arrived for a fee of £8m from Barcelona. However, his attempt to sign Real Madrid's Robinho was scuppered by a last-minute bid from Manchester City. His Chelsea reign began brightly, opening with a 4-0 victory over Portsmouth and the team topped the table early in the season. They also registered a 5-0 win away to Middlesbrough, Chelsea's biggest away win since 2003.
He suffered his first loss of the season against Liverpool, ending the club's record-breaking 86-match unbeaten run at Stamford Bridge. Two weeks later Chelsea were knocked out of the Carling Cup by Burnley. The winter period saw the club register only four wins in twelve league games, a run which included further losses against Arsenal, Manchester United and Liverpool again.
He was sacked on 9 February following a 0-0 home draw against Hull City, with Chelsea lying 4th in the Premier League. A club statement attributed his dismissal to performances and results "deteriorating at a key time in the season". 
Scolari then managed Uzbekistan side Bunyodkor for one generally disappointing season, before returning to Brazil for a second stint as manager of Palmeiras.
