New York City FC announced on Friday that the club and head coach Domenic Torrent had agreed to part ways.
Torrent assumed control of the team in June 2018 upon the departure of Patrick Vieira to Nice.
“While I’ve greatly enjoyed coaching NYCFC and the incredible life experience of living in New York, in mutual discussion with the club, I feel this is the right time for myself and my family to look for other opportunities as I develop my career as a head coach," Torrent said in a statement. “I’d like to thank NYCFC for giving me this opportunity. I’ve learned a lot during my time at the Club after working with a fantastic Sporting Department and a great group of coaches."
Under Torrent, NYCFC finished atop the Eastern Conference with a team record 64 points, but the team fell in the second round of the MLS Cup playoffs to eventual Eastern champions, Toronto FC.
