Jesse Marsch is looking for a new job once again.

Jesse Marsch has been sacked – again.

Leeds United gave the former Red Bulls head coach his pink slip on Monday as the English Premier League side hadn’t won a league game since November.

Despite his firing, Marsch, who was the Leeds manager for less than a year, has become an intriguing candidate to take over the U.S. men’s national team coaching job. The status of Gregg Berhalter, who directed the Americans into the knockout round at the 2022 World Cup, is uncertain as U.S. Soccer investigates a situation in which the parents of U.S. midfielder-forward Gio Reyna complained to the federation about their son’s lack of playing time in Qatar.

Marsch had been axed by RB Leipzig (Germany) in December 2021.

Leeds (4-10-6, 18 points), which lost at Nottingham Forest, 1-0, on Sunday, is hovering barely above the relegation zone in 17th place out of 20 teams.

The announcement came a week after Leeds added USMNT midfielder Weston McKennie on loan from Juventus (Italy). McKennie joined international teammates Tyler Adams, who captained the U.S. in Qatar, and Brenden Aaronson on the squad.

“Leeds United can confirm head coach Jesse Marsch has been relieved of his duties, the EPL club said in a statement. “Jesse joined the club in February 2022 and was instrumental in keeping the club in the Premier League on the final day of last season. Rene Maric, Cameron Toshack and Pierre Barrieu will also leave the club.

“We would like to thank Jesse and his backroom staff for their efforts and wish them well for the future. The process of appointing a new head coach is underway and we will continue to keep supporters up to date throughout the coming days.”

Former Red Bulls head coach Chris Armas, who joined the team as an assistant to Marsch two weeks ago, apparently has survived the firing, as the club did not say anything about his status.
