Soehn out as D.C. United head coach

Tom Soehn (

Tom Soehn will not be back as head coach of D.C. United after removing his name from consideration to be retained upon the conclusion of his current contract at the end of the calendar year.

D.C. United failed to make the playoffs for a second straight season, but it did enjoy success under Soehn, who helped guide the team to a Supporters Shield in 2007 and U.S. Open Cup title in 2008.

No word on who will replace Soehn but two names expected to be at the top of the list for consideration are current Red Bulls interim head coach Richie Williams and former Kansas City Wizards head coach Curt Onalfo. Former U.S. national team captain and D.C. United standout John Harkes is also expected to be in the mix.

What do you think of this development? Think it was time for Soehn to go, or did you feel he deserved more time? Who do you want D.C. to hire as his replacement?
