Brazil head coach Luiz Felipe Scolari resigned Monday, after leading the World Cup host country to a fourth-place finish.

Fourth place would sound pretty good to some nations, but not when you are Brazil and hadn't lost a competitive match at home since 1975.

Scolari coached Brazil to its last World Cup title in 2002, resigned, and retook the helm in 2012, leading the country to the 2013 Confederations Cup title.

Brazil did well until the semifinal, when it lost to Germany 7-1, and followed that up with a 3-0 loss to the Netherlands.

Scolari's entire staff also resigned.

As you probably know, Germany won the cup this year.
