Onalfo was 6-10-4 this season with the team. They are presently 9th in the Western Conference.
Schmid takes over with Thursday’s training session. He was previously their head coach from 1999 to 2004.
Onalfo replaced Bruce Arena in December when he accepted the U.S. National Team job. The Galaxy were winless in their past five games.
Schmid is the winningest coach in Major League Soccer history.
The 64-year-old is receiving a deal through the 2-18 season. He was previously the Seattle Sounders FC manager from 20009 through 2016.
He also managed the Columbus Crew and the United States U20 team.
Schmid is a two-time MLS Cup champion in 2002 and 2008. He also won the MLS Supporters’ Shield three-times, the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup four-times and the CONCACAF Champions Cup in 2000. He also coached the UCLA Bruins to the College Cup in 1985, 1990 and 1997.
Onalfo, whose 47-year-old, has struggled in his previous MLS coaching tenures. He had short tenures with the Kansas City Wizards, D.C. United and the Galaxy. He’s only managed the Wizards for multiple years — and managed the LA Galaxy II for three-years.
