Toronto FC fire coach Chris Armas amid club struggles in MLS

Toronto FC fired first-year head coach Chris Armas on Sunday, a day after the team lost their sixth consecutive game with a 7-1 beating at the hands of DC United.

Toronto FC (1-2-8, 5 points) are 0-6-1 since their 2-0 win over Columbus Crew SC on May 12. The club have scored 27 MLS goals in 11 games, while scoring just 13 times.

Armas, 48, was hired in January after head coach Greg Vanney joined LA Galaxy after a seven-year stint with Toronto FC.

Armas previously served as the head coach of the New York Red Bulls for just over two years before being sacked last September. He recorded a 29-21-11 record with the Red Bulls and led the club to the Supporters’ Shield in 2018 and two playoff appearances (2018, 2019).

Prior to coaching, Armas played in 264 games for the Galaxy and Chicago Fire and also won 66 caps for the United States Men’s National Team.

Toronto FC were 13-5-5 (44 points, 1.91 points per game) last season to secure the second seed in the Eastern Conference.
