Tis the season to replace National Women’s Soccer League coaches.
NWSL expansion team Racing Louisville FC Tuesday night announced that it terminated head coach Christy Holly’s contract “for cause.”
The club did not elaborate.
Racing Louisville (4-8-4) is in ninth place out of 10 teams.
On Sunday, Freya Coombe, who will guide the 2022 expansion team Angel City FC, coached her last game with NJ/NY Gotham FC.
Holly coached Sky Blue FC.
Mario Sanchez, head of Soccer Holdings’ youth academy system, will serve as Racing’s interim head coach until a permanent hire is made. A USSF ‘A’ license coach with 21 years of NCAA Division I coaching experience, Sanchez joined Racing’s parent company, Soccer Holdings, in 2019.
Racing hosts OL Reign at Lynn Family Stadium Saturday at 7:30 p.m.
