Dynamo head coach Dominic Kinnear resigns

The Houston Dynamo will have a new head coach for the 2015 season. Dominic Kinnear, the current head coach, has announced his resignation at the end of this season.

According to the announcement, Kinnear will accept the San Jose Earthquakes head coach position.

“After non fantastic years, it’s sad and difficult to see Dominic departing the Dynamo,” Team President Chris Canetti said. “We’ve had a great run together, and he’s played a vital role in who we are as a club. We will sorely miss him as a coach and as a person. We understood his desire to return home to San Jose and felt it was appropriate to grant him that wish after all he’s done for us. We wish him and his family the best of luck in the future.”

Kinnear is returning to the Earthquakes team, where he previously served two years as head coach. Following those years, the Earthquakes franchise then relocated to become the Dynamo.

He had a 152-116-107 record in his nine years with the team. He led the Dynamo to two MLS Championships in 2006 and 2007. The team also reached four conference championships in 2006, 2007, 2011, and 2012, and they reached the playoffs in seven of his nine years at the helm.

The Dynamo will face the New England Revolution tomorrow on ESPN2 at 8 pm. Then, they close out the regular season on Friday, October 24th at 8 pm against the Chicago Fire.
