However, Allardyce was an unpopular choice with fans and with the atmosphere at Goodison Park becoming increasingly toxic, he has been jettisoned with 12 months left on his contract.
Allardyce's backroom staff of assistant manager Sammy Lee, first-team coach Craig Shakespeare and goalkeeping coach Martyn Margetson have also been released from their contracts.
Allardyce has been criticised by some people for the way he's managed the team and for their style of play since he took over.
Allardyce, who was briefly England manager in 2016 before returning to club management last season at Crystal Palace, had already reacted angrily to structural changes at the club before his meeting with the Iranian-born British tycoon Moshiri.
The 2017/18 season has now come to a close, and for Everton supporters, it won't be looked back on too fondly despite the club finishing 8th in the Premier League. However, it is the 63-year-old's attitude that has perturbed fans of the Merseyside club too.

He believes Allardyce did a very good job in ensuring a top ten finish for Everton after such a horror start to their season.
A statement on West Ham's website confirming Moyes's departure said the club wanted to take a "different direction". However, Watford refused the former Olympiakos boss permission to speak to the Merseysiders. "They deserve great respect for the job they have done and they leave the Club with our best wishes".
Ironically, Everton's reported interest in Silva led to the Hornets form dropping dramatically and eventually led to the Hornets sacking their highly rated Portuguese boss.
