Chicago Fire Hire Carlos de los Cobos As Head Coach

Following weeks of speculation, the Chicago Fire will announce Carlos de los Cobos as head coach Monday morning.
The last MLS team left without a head coach finally found its man as the Chicago Fire landed Carlos de los Cobos.

De los Cobos, a former Mexican international as a player, most recently coached the El Salvadorian national team. In 2010 World Cup qualifying, de los Cobos led El Salvador into the Hexagonal, a first for La Azul since 1998.

Eventually, the United States, Mexico, and Honduras qualified, leaving El Salvador with nothing to do in the summer of 2010 and prompting de los Cobos to bring an end to his three years in charge of the team.

The Fire decided against renewing Denis Hamlett's contract at the end of 2009 after Chicago finished trophy-less for a second successive year under Hamlett.

De los Cobos will be presented as Chicago's fifth ever coach to the media Monday morning.
