The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the team had not yet announced the dismissal. A news conference to discuss the team's future is scheduled for Friday.
TSN first reported Bylsma's firing.
Bylsma won a franchise-record 252 games but failed to produce a bookend to the championship he won with stars Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin in 2009. The Penguins were just 4-5 in playoff series since raising the Stanley Cup five years ago.
The status of general manager Ray Shero is also unclear.
