Toronto fires hall of fame coach Preki

BY foxsports • September 14, 2010

First-year coach Preki Radosavljevic has been fired by Toronto for winning only seven of 24 games in Major League Soccer.

Toronto appears likely to miss the playoffs following Saturday's 1-0 home loss to D.C. United, which has the poorest record in the league.

Director of soccer Mo Johnston, with the team since it began playing in MLS in 2007, was also fired.

Preki, inducted last month into the U.S. Hall of Fame, earned MLS coach of the year honors at Chivas USA.

Assistant coach Nick Dasovic was appointed interim head coach on Tuesday with six games left in the regular season.
