Reserve team coach Joseba Aguado has taken over duties on an interim basis ahead of Sunday's trip to Atletico Madrid, the club said on their internet site.
Caparros took over the reins at the beginning of the season, having previously coached Villarreal, Sevilla and Athletic Bilbao amongst other clubs in Spain and Switzerland.
Granada are second from bottom in La Liga after 18 matches.
Former goalkeeper and coach Abel Resino has been named by Spanish media as the favourite to succeed Caparros.
