Atlanta United head coach fired

Atlanta United has fired head coach Gonzalo Pineda. The Five Stripes lost their 5th straight home game Sunday and have won just once in their last eleven outings. Pineda went 34-34-29 on the sidelines since 2021 with Atlanta, who sits tied for 9th in the MLS East with 19 points. Assistant Coach Rob Valentino will take over as interim head coach with 18 matches remaining in the season.
