Anscombe joined Ulster in 2012 and lead the province to two Heineken Cup quarter-finals, both of which were lost to Saracens.
Ireland assistant coach Les Kiss comes in as interim Director of Rugby while the province recruits a replacement for the New Zealander.
Regarding Kiss, Ulster Rugby chief executive Shane Logan said:
Les Kiss will have an expanded remit for the province's Director of Rugby and will lead the coaching staff, assisted by Jonny Bell and Neil Doak, and will manage first team selection.
His appointment allows us time to recruit for long-term success.
