Jamaica manager Whitmore resigns

Jamaica National Team manager Theodore Whitmore tendered his resignation in the early hours of Wednesday morning, following a 2-0 defeat in Honduras, one that left the Reggae Boyz with just two points from six matches in the Hexagonal round.

The Jamaican Football Federation President Horace Burrell has yet to announce a replacement.

Whitmore, who accrued over 100 caps for Jamaica during his playing career, had been in charge of the national team since June 2009, after two stints as an interim manager in 2007 and 2008.

During his time as manager, the 40-year-old Montego Bay native guided Jamaica to a fifth-place finish at the 2011 Gold Cup and put the team in the Hexagonal Round of World Cup qualifying for the first time since qualification for the 2002 World Cup.

What do you make of this news? Surprised to see him resign? Think he made the right choice?
