Chris Armas isn’t going anywhere, at least not to Real Salt Lake.

The Red Bulls assistant coach has turned down an opportunity to talk to RSL as it tries to find a replacement for fired head coach Jeff Cassar, Kristian Dyer of Metro New York reported Thursday.

Cassar was sacked by the Major League Soccer club Monday, only three games into the Major League Soccer season.

According to Metro New York, a source said that RSL reached out to New York, but Armas said no.

Armas, a former standout with Adelphi University, the Chicago Fire and U.S. national team, is considered to be a future head coach in the league by a number of observers.

Before he became head coach Jesse Marsch’s assistant in 2015, the Long Island product coached the Adelphi women’s team.
