Iceland coach steps down after 7 years in charge
REYKJAVIK, Iceland (AP) The coach that led Iceland to its first World Cup has stepped down.
The Icelandic Football Association says Heimir Hallgrimsson has decided to leave at his own request, ending seven years in the role.
After Lagerback left, Hallgrimsson assumed sole control of the national team, which became the least populous team to ever play at a World Cup. Iceland drew with Argentina in its opening group game but failed to advance to the knockout stage.
Hellgrimsson is a part-time dentist.
