MOST COMMENTED

Bob Gansler, Kansas City Wizards head coach since 1999 and winner of the 2000 MLS title, has resigned.

In seven seasons with the Wizards, the former U.S. national team coach (1982 and 1989-90) compiled a regular-season record of 86-85-51 and a playoff record of 9-8-3.

This season, the Wizards are 6-10-2 and are in the midst of a six-game losing streak. They did not reach the playoffs in 2005, a year after finishing runner-up in 2004.

Gansler's assistant Brian Bliss will serve as interim head coach.

Gansler is the third coaching casualty this season, after Steve Sampson (Los Angeles) and Mo Johnston (New York.)
