FC Dallas fired coach Luchi Gonzalez on Sunday and replaced him on an interim basis with Marco Ferruzzi.
Dallas has only won six of its 26 matches this season and has nine draws.
"We made the tough decision to part ways with Luchi after a great deal of thought and deliberation. We believe a coaching change is in the best interest of the club at this time to help us achieve our goals,'' FC Dallas President Dan Hunt said in a statement. "I want to thank Luchi for everything he has done for this organization. We wish him all the best.''
