Owen Coyle Leaves Houston Dynamo’s
Former Burnley manager Owen Coyle has left his role as head coach of Houston Dynamo by mutual consent this morning in order to be closer to his family in England.
Coyle took charge of the MLS club in December 2014 on a three-year deal but has had little success, with the Dynamos failing to reach the play-offs last season while they currently sit bottom of the Western Conference with three wins from their opening 12 matches.
But it is for personal reasons that the forty nine year-old Scot is bringing an early end to his stay in the United States.
Speaking about his leaving the Dynamos Owen Coyle said, “I asked the club president Chris Canetti if I could speak with him and I explained to him the challenge of being away from my family and how we all want the best for Houston Dynamo.
I want to wish all members of the staff, from Gabriel Brener (Owner), Chris Canetti (President), Matt Jordan (GM). Everyone has been such a source of support, along with the players and the technical staff. I’d like to thank the Dynamo supporters, who have been outstanding. We have a brilliant club, and I have no doubt success is just around the corner.”
Canetti added: “It is unfortunate that we were unable to achieve the goals we set forth together and that we find ourselves mutually parting ways as a result of many professional and personal circumstances.
Without a doubt, Owen brought many great qualities to the club since his arrival 18 months ago and made a positive impression on the people around him. He is an excellent coach and an even better person, and I wish him and his terrific family nothing but the best going forward.”
