Chris Armas reportedly is heading across the border for his next coaching challenge.
TSN soccer analyst Kristian Jack reported that the former Red Bulls head coach will assume the same position with Toronto FC.
The Brentwood, N.Y. native will succeed Greg Vanney, who recently quit to become head man with the LA Galaxy.
Armas was fired by the Red Bulls Sept. 4 as the team underachieved in the final year of his two-year tenure with the club.
Taking over for the departed Jesse Marsch in 2018, Armas directed the Red Bulls to the Supporters’ Shield crown that year and into the 2019 MLS Cup Playoffs as well.
He registered a 29-21-11 mark during is time with the Red Bulls.
Armas had interviewed with D.C. United for its open head coaching job late last year.
Former Red Bulls sporting director Ali Curtis is in the same position with the club.
