Interesting that you didn't mention RSL since they fired an incompetent coach (John Ellinger) after 3 seasons and have become one of the best teams in the league ever since despite a limited budget. Seems like a pretty good argument for getting rid of Nowak if you ask me. Also, Gary Smith won the MLS Cup in his 3rd season (2nd if you don't count his partial interim year) and was not retained after his 4th year with the club so he's a pretty terrible example unless you think Nowak is going to lead the Union to an MLS Cup win this season and then get fired after next season. This team has regressed since last year. We play an ugly style and don't get results either. If we don't make the playoffs, I don't see how anyone could that Nowak deserves to keep his job.
