During that period he led Wolves to the Premier League and recorded back-to-back seventh placed finishes.
He also guided them to the Europa League quarter-finals last season.
Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano claims Wolves have already contacted ex-Benfica boss Bruno Laga and he is their ‘main option’ to take over.
Current Porto manager Sergio Conceicao is also on their shortlist but 45-year-old former Benfica chief Bruno Lage is allegedly the favourite for the job.
Nuno, who SunSport exclusively revealed last month is wanted to take over at Tottenham by his agent Jorge Mendes, said: “Since the first day we arrived at Compton, our ambition was to make a positive change and push this football club forward, and I am proud to say that we did that every single day.
“We achieved our goals, we did it with passion and we did it together.
“Firstly, I want to thank the supporters, who have all played such an important part in helping us reach new heights for Wolves, and the people of the city, who embraced us and made us feel at home.
“I, of course, want to thank all of the staff at Wolves, for their support and total commitment, every single day.

“Most importantly, I want to thank each-and-every player that we’ve worked with since the day we started, for their loyalty, their dedication, hard work and talent.
“They are the ones who have made this amazing journey possible for us.
“Sunday will be a very emotional day, but I am so happy that the fans will be back in Molineux and we can share one last special moment together, as one pack.”
Jeff Shi, executive chairman at Wolves, added: “Nuno has brought us some incredibly special moments at Wolves that will never be forgotten, but every chapter comes to an end.
“His loyalty and dedication over the last four years has been immeasurable, and we cannot thank him enough for the progress he has made for Wolves.
“Sunday was already going to be a very special day, welcoming our supporters back for the first time in more than a year; but it will also now be a fitting goodbye for someone who will forever remain an important part of Wolves history.”
