Brazil took little time handing Luiz Felipe Scolari his walking papers after a disastrous end to the 2014 World Cup. The removal, in fact, called to mind the situation in 2010, when Brazil fired it's manager, Dunga, after just a run to the quarterfinals of the World Cup in South Africa.

Well, Dunga's back. Brazil's soccer federation announced the move Tuesday to bring back the former coach and player, who led Brazil to a title on the field in 1994.

"I am immensely happy to be back," Dunga said, according to the Guardian.

It's becoming a trend in Brazil: win the World Cup or you're out. It happened in 2006 with Carlos Alberto Parreira, 2010 with Dunga, and this year with Scolari. Furthermore, all three coaches have now had two separate tenures as manager.

You know your mission, Dunga.
