Gullit and Lalas are out

They’re both gone:

In a stunning, though not completely surprising turn of events at the Los Angeles Galaxy, both Ruud Gullit head coach and team president Alexi Lalas are looking for new jobs.

The Galaxy fired Lalas on Monday, the same day Gullit resigned as head coach. Tom Payne takes over as the Galaxy’s president while long-time Galaxy midfielder Cobi Jones takes over as interim head coach in the midst of his first season as an assistant after retiring last season.

This of course comes as no surprise to readers of this blog or even the blinded of MLS observers. A team with that defense, and that kind of coach and GM never stood a chance. Is Cobi the long-term answer at coach, or is another big name required for the “Glamour Team of MLS?”
