INDIANAPOLIS – Indy Eleven announced on Wednesday morning the organization and Head Coach Martin Rennie had mutually agreed to end his tenure with Indiana’s Team, effective immediately.
“On behalf of the club, I want to sincerely thank Martin for his contributions to Indy Eleven over the last three and a half years, especially his professionalism in navigating our entry into the USL Championship,” said Indy Eleven President & Chief Executive Officer, Greg Stremlaw.
“In the short term, we will look to our current coaching staff to handle duties on an interim basis as we prepare for this weekend’s match” continued Stremlaw. “We expect our search for a permanent head coach to be conducted in a way that will expedite the securement of a quality candidate who can lead us to a championship in 2021 and beyond.”
Rennie’s tenure ends eight games into his fourth season with the squad, which began with a 3-4-1 record, with the club’s 1-0 defeat to Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC on Tuesday night its third in a row. Overall, Rennie compiled a 42-31-19 record in the USL Championship and a 2-2-0 record in postseason play over his three-plus seasons on Indy sideline.
