SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio FC announced on Wednesday it had mutually agreed to part ways with Head Coach and Technical Director Darren Powell. Powell compiled a 59-44-39 record in all competitions in his time with SAFC.
“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. “Our focus now shifts to identifying and appointing a new leader to guide the next phase of our club’s sporting development and performance.”
Powell originally joined the club prior to the 2016 campaign, remaining in his position for the team’s first four seasons. He led San Antonio to a second-place finish in the Western Conference in the 2017 season, but the side narrowly missed out on the playoffs in each of the past two years, with a draw against Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC on the final weekend of the 2019 season seeing the side miss the postseason by one point.
SAFC will immediately begin the search process for a new Head Coach and Technical Director.
