"We thank Guus Hiddink for his good service."
Turkey, semi-finalists at Euro 2008, lost 3-0 at home to Croatia in the first leg of their play-off on Friday before a 0-0 draw in Tuesday's return leg confirmed their fate.
Hiddink took over the post in January 2010 on a two-year contract, following a short-term stint as head coach at Premier League giants Chelsea.
