The move came Friday as the Marlins neared the end of their third consecutive last-place season in the NL East.
Loria also fired Jim Fleming, who had been Beinfest's special assistant. The owner said he would soon make further announcements about a new structure in baseball operations.
The moves came even though Beinfest and Fleming are under contract through 2015.
