Chivas USA, Preki part ways
CARSON, Calif. -- Chivas USA and Preki are parting ways two years after he was chosen Major League Soccer's coach of the year.
The club said Thursday that Preki will pursue other opportunities. His contract expires at year's end.
Preki Radosavljevic became Chivas USA's fourth coach in January 2007, replacing Bob Bradley, whom he had been an assistant to during the 2006 season. Preki had a career record of 49-29-21 and his winning percentage of .561 was the best in club history.
Chivas USA made the playoffs in each of Preki's three seasons in charge, and he was the longest-serving coach in team history. Preki was a two-time MVP in MLS.
The Red and White lost to the rival Los Angeles Galaxy in the two-game Western Conference playoffs this season.
