It appears the New England Revolution's 5-0 loss to the Chicago Fire on Wednesday was the last straw for Brad Friedel.
U.S. & World
The Revolution relieved Friedel of his head coach duties Thursday, naming assistant Mike Lapper the interim head coach, effective immediately.
Friedel's firing comes after a brutal 2-8-2 start to the 2019 season for the Revs, who sit in last place in the MLS' Eastern Conference and have the worst goal differential (-19) in the entire league.
Friedel, a former goalkeeper for several Premier League teams, was in his second season as New England's head coach after replacing Jay Heaps in November 2017.
He ends his Revs tenure with a 12-21-13 overall record.
