Take a look at the wives and girlfriends from Major League Soccer.

Coach Jesse Marsch is leaving the Montreal Impact after one season in Major League Soccer.

The surprise announcement came Saturday, days after the club ended its expansion season with a better-then-expected 12-16-6 record.

''This is not a dismissal or a resignation,'' said team president Joey Saputo, adding that Marsch and management had differences of opinion on how the team would be run.

He said both sides agreed it was better to part ways.

Goalkeeping coach Preston Burpo and conditioning coach Adam Rotchstein also left the team, while assistant coaches Mike Sorber, Mauro Biello and Denis Hamlett will remain.

Marsch thanked the team and the fans and called the move ''the right decision.''
