, who served as the Houston Dynamo interim coach for the last five months, won't get the head coaching job, the Houston Chronicle reported
The Dynamo went 4-7-11 under Barrett and finished with a
7-14-13 record for last place in the Western Conference. Barrett replaced Owen Coyle
, who left three months into his second season as head coach.
Houston president Chris
told the Chronicle that the decision was based on Barrett's lack of head coaching experience.
"We're not really making this about Wade and what he did or didn't do," Canetti
said. "This is about where we're at as a club and what we need going forward. It is a timing thing."
Barrett captained the Dynamo to 2006 and 2007 MLS Cup titles in its first two seasons
in Houston after leaving San Jose.
