KC Wizards Axe Head Coach Curt Onalfo

The KC Wizards have fired coaching tandem Curt Onalfo and Kris Kelderman.
The Kansas City Wizards have fired head coach Curt Onalfo as well as his assistant, Kris Kelderman. The move comes following a 6-0 battering at the hands of FC Dallas.

"Our shareholder group is thankful for Curt Onalfo's service over the last two-and-a-half seasons, but we felt a change needed to be made," OnGoal CEO and Wizards president Robb Heineman said. "We are committed to developing high-performance and consistency around our club."

The Brazilian-born former United States international had led the Wizards to two consecutive playoff births. Kansas City sits sixth in the East, where only the New York Red Bulls have a worse record.

An interim coach will be announced Tuesday, August 4.
