Atlanta United are once again looking for a new head coach after firing Gabriel Heinze, he served for 7 months, and during that term Atlanta have only won 2 games, with 4 losses and 7 ties. The team’s ownership has denied that it was due to results, or that star player Joseph Martinez was in training separate from the team. Assistant Coach Rob Valentino has been named interim coach. Atlanta has now gone through 5 coaches (counting ‘interim’ appointments) in their 5 year history.
