RSL fired Jeff Cassar. That's a VERY quick hook by MLS standards, even though Cassar entered the season atop the Sack Race lists. http://www.sltrib.com/sports/5082473-155/real-salt-lake-fires-head-coach On one hand it makes sense. RSL is winless in three games after going winless in their final eight games of 2016. Their last win was in August. On the other hand, if they are going to fire Cassar after three games, they may as well have pulled the plug over the winter instead of giving him a contract extension. RSL hired Mike Petke to manage their USL team in December. He will probably be a candidate for the MLS job, though I expect there to be a broader search as well.
