Toronto FC fired first-year head coach Chris Armas on Sunday, just one day after his team lost its sixth straight game with a 7-1 loss at the hands of DC United.
Toronto is 1-2-8 on the season and is 0-6-1 since securing a 2-0 win over Columbus Crew SC on May 12. The club has allowed 27 goals, the worst in MLS, and has scored just 13 times.
Armas was hired in January after former head coach Greg Vanney joined the LA Galaxy after a seven-year tenure with Toronto FC. Last season under Vanney, Toronto was 13-5-5, securing the second seed in the Eastern Conference.
Armas previously served as the head coach of the New York Red Bulls for more than two years before being fired last September. He was 29-21-11 with the Red Bulls, leading the club to a pair of playoff appearances in 2018 and 2019.
The 48-year-old entered as a coach after a 12-year career as a player in Major League Soccer. He appeared in 264 games for the Galaxy and Chicago Fire. On top of that, he also appeared in 66 matches for the US men’s national team.
It is unclear who Toronto is targeting to take over Armas.
