San Antonio FC has parted ways with head coach Darren Powell after four seasons, the club announced on Wednesday morning.
The news comes just two weeks after the 2019 regular season ended with SAFC giving away a 2-0 lead against Colorado Springs, which resulted in the club missing the playoffs for the third time in four seasons.
“We are grateful for all of Darren’s hard work over the past four seasons, and the passion and class with which he has served San Antonio FC and our city,” said SAFC Managing Director Tim Holt in a press release. “Our focus now shifts to identifying and appointing a new leader to guide the next phase of our club’s sporting development and performance.”
The England native coach took to Twitter, thanking Spurs Sports and Entertainment as well as the fans for the past four years.

Powell departs after guiding SAFC to a 59-44-39 record in four seasons. San Antonio made the playoffs in 2017, advancing to the Western Conference Semifinal against OKC Energy.
San Antonio FC will begin the search for a new head coach and technical director immediately.
