The Mexican Football Federation (FMF) liked enough of what they saw from Miguel Herrera to decide against finding what would have been the fifth coach of the Mexican national team since September.
Following a meeting of the Liga MX owners, many of whom make up the board of directors of the FMF, national team directorHéctor González Iñarritu announced that Herrera would take over as head coach on a permanent basis when his season ends with Club America.
For the fourth time in five matches, there will be a new man in charge of the Mexico National Team.
After two games in charge, which included the thrilling 2-1 victory over Panama and a 2-1 defeat in Costa Rica, the Mexican Football Federation (FMF) have decided to part ways Victor Manuel Vucetich, according to a Vucetich himself in a strongly-worded interview with ESPN Deportes.
The search for a new head coach took a little more than two months but Columbus Crew owner Anthony Precourt believes he found just the right person to take the club into what he called "a new era."
On Tuesday afternoon, the Crew officially introduced Gregg Berhalter as the club's seventh head coach and first sporting director at a press conference at Crew Stadium, giving fans and the media a chance to see Berhalter for the first time in person since he was hired on November 6.
At his season review press conference with the media on Tuesday, Montreal Impact owner Joey Saputo shot down reports that recently retired Impact defender Alessandro Nesta would be the club's next head coach.
Reports surfaced last Friday that Nesta was in line to replace current head coach Marco Schallibaum, who in his first year as the Impact's manager lead the team to a tremendous start before a poor run at the end of the season and a 3-0 defeat to the Houston Dynamo to crash out of the playoffs.
Not surprisingly, the Egyptian Football Association (EFA) has decided not to renew Bob Bradley's contract as coach of the national team after the nation exited in the World Cup playoffs stage due to their aggregate defeat to Ghana.
EFA Chairman Gamal Allam said:
"Bob Bradley's contract ended this night, and we will not renew for him.
As reported by various outlets tonight, Frank Klopas is out as coach of the Fire. Klopas was named as Technical Director in 2008 before taking over for Carlos De Los Cobos behind the bench in May of 2011.

Firing managers is commonplace in soccer. The quickest fix to a sinking ship or ship floating adrift at sea is relieving the head coach of his command.
