Sigi Schmid has stepped down as manager of the LA Galaxy.

Dominic Kinnear has been named LA Galaxy Interim Head Coach for the remainder of the season.

“I have coached at various levels of soccer in the United States for over 35 years, where I have dedicated myself to furthering the sport in our country,” said Sigi Schmid. “After careful consideration, I have decided to step away from coaching at this time, but would like to remain in the game. With six games remaining as the club fights for a playoff spot, I understand the timing of this decision is unfortunate. However, I believe this group can come together and fight for a spot this season under Dom’s guidance. I am grateful to the LA Galaxy for being such a significant part of my life and my career. I want to thank Mr. Anschutz, the fans, my players and the club for their support during my time here.”
