Instead of waiting on the pink slip, Juan Carlos Osorio took it upon himself to pull a Fernando Clavijo and resign from the New York Red Bulls. Not many details are out yet but a conference call is set for a couple hours from now.

Ives, the New York Post and others are all reporting it.

It looks like assistant coach Richie Williams is set to be the interim coach, a move that I said would be a smart one by the Red Bulls if they’d just pull the trigger on Osorio. Those in New York may recall Williams stepping in when Mo Johnston got the boot a few years back. His record as an interim coach was 4-3-2 In all competitions.

Osorio leaves New York with very little. He proved he really couldn’t coach in Major League Soccer after all, going 21-31-21 (including playoffs).

Now for the brass to get rid of Jeff Agoos and really clean up the mess there would be a start. Most are saying Osorio and Agood never saw eye to eye, which would explain a lot of things.
