Maguire is the second NRL coach to leave his club within 24 hours after Nathan Brown was dropped by the Warriors on Tuesday morning.
The Tiger board conducted a mid-season review last week where it was decided not to continue working at Maguire.
He ran to practice on Tuesday morning but was reportedly ready to announce his departure to his players on Tuesday afternoon.
After 13 rounds, the Tigers sit 13th on the NRL ladder with three wins to their name.
Maguire took over from Evan Cleary four years ago but the team has slipped down the stairs every season.
The Tigers have not reached the final since 2011.
Maguire is the third coach to lose his job this season. Trent Barrett resigned from the Bulldogs last month.
