Bora Milutinovic, the USA's coach at the 1994 World Cup, has been fired as Jamaican national team coach by the debt-ridden Jamaican soccer federation. Milutinovic, the only person to have coached five different countries at the World Cup, took charge of the Reggae Boyz one year ago on a four-year contract. Jamaica, whose last game was an 8-1 loss to Iran in July, won only once under Milutinovic, a 2-0 win over Malaysia. His Jamaica stint was Milutinovic's eighth with a national team.


The Jamaican federation, which is $1.1 million in debt, is reportedly courting the Brazilian Rene Simoes, who guided the Reggae Boyz to the 1998 World Cup, which marked Jamaica's first appearance.

Milutinovic was reportedly on a $1 million a year salary.

Since the Simoes era, Jamaica has struggled. It failed to qualify for the 2007 Gold Cup before Milutinovic took over.
