Orlando City SC has agreed to part ways with Head Coach Jason Kreis, effective immediately.
Assistant coach Bobby Murphy will lead the team while the Club conducts a comprehensive search for a new Head Coach.
“This is a very difficult decision to take, but sometimes in sports we must make tough decisions with the best future of the organization in mind,” Orlando City SC CEO Alex Leitão said. “I have enormous respect for Jason and the work his team did in Orlando. He arrived in a difficult moment and is leaving with a legacy of respect and professionalism. Now is the time to look forward, keep our heads high and continue pushing toward the many goals we set this season.”
Orlando city is in the midst of a six game losing streak after a strong six game winning streak earlier in the season. The team could not find the back of the goal when striker Dom Dwyer was out due to injury, and continually had slow starts to matches which they could not overcome.
Assistant Coaches CJ Brown and Miles Joseph have also left the Club by mutual agreement, effective immediately.
