Mexico coach Miguel Herrera will learn whether he stays or goes on Tuesday following a reported airport scuffle with a TV Azteca reporter.
The Mexico Football Federation met on Tuesday to discuss Herrera's fate after the incident that allegedly took place at Philadelphia International Airport following El Tri's Gold Cup win over Jamaica. The news conference is scheduled for 3 p.m. ET.
ESPN analyst John Sutcliffe on Tuesday afternoon tweeted that Herrera is out as coach.
Mexican television commentator Christian Martinoli on Monday accused Mexico coach Miguel Herrera of assaulting him at an airport in Philadelphia.
The incident allegedly occurred the morning after Mexico beat Jamaica 3-1 on Sunday to win the Gold Cup at Lincoln Financial Field.
TV Azteca's Martinoli, who has been one of the strongest critics of Herrera, said the Mexico coach hit him in the neck with his fist before being separated by fellow commentator and former Mexico player Luis Garcia.
