Montreal Impact fire Mauro Biello
Montreal Impact owner Joey Saputo announced Monday the club has fired Mauro Biello from the position of head coach, along with his assistants Jason Di Tullio and Wilfred Nancy.
"It's time to make a change in the leadership of the club," Saputo told reporters, as quoted by MLSsoccer.com.
Biello failed to see the Impact to one of the six Eastern Conference playoff spots by the end of the 2017 MLS season, which ended on Sunday night with a loss to the New England Revolution.
Biello, 45, was an Impact player in the USL from 2000-09 and was a member of the club's coaching staff before he took over at the helm on Aug. 30, 2016, when Frank Klopas was removed from his duties.
He ends his tenure as head coach with a 37-35-22 record, and can boast guiding the Impact to the Eastern Conference Final last season - the furthest the club has gone in the MLS postseason.
