Toronto FC resigned first-year boss Chris Armas on Sunday, just a day after his side lost their sixth straight game with a 7-1 defeat at hand to DC United.
Toronto is 1-2-8 in the season and is 0-6-1 since securing a 2-0 win over Columbus Crew SC on May 12th. The club allowed the 27 worst MLSs while scoring just 13 times.
Armas was signed in January after former head coach Greg Vanney joined LA Galaxy after a seven-year stint with Toronto FC. Last season under Vanney, Toronto went 13-5-5, securing the second seed in the Eastern Conference.
Armas first served as coach of the New York Red Bulls for more than two years before being fired last September. He went 29-21-11 with the Red Bulls, leading the club to a couple of playoff appearances in 2018 and 2019.
The 48-year-old entered coaching after a 12-year playing career in Major League Soccer. He appeared in 264 games for the Galaxy and the Chicago Fire. In addition to this, he also appeared in 66 games for the United States men’s national team.
It’s unclear if Toronto could be destined to take over for Armas.
