In the wake of Saturday's embarassing Cunningham-fueled thrashing, the Kansas City Wizards have announced that Head Coach Curt Onalfo HAS BEEN FIRED effective immediately.
Wizards Technical Director Peter Vermes will finish out the 2009 season on an interim basis.
The highly respected Vermes has of course been at the top of many team's wish lists and in recent years has turned down both the Galaxy GM job and the head coach position with Seattle FC. Handing him the reins became necessary when the team decided to also terminate assistant coach Kris Kelderman.
Onalfo took over the club prior to the 2007 season. His lifetime record stands at 27-29-22.
Disappointed Red Bulls fans will surely note that they can't even win the "Fire the Coach Sweepstakes" this year.
