Kansas City Wizards dismiss Head Coach Curt Onalfo

From the Wizards:
The Kansas City Wizards announced Monday that the team has dismissed Head Coach Curt Onalfo. The Wizards will announce an Interim Head Coach Tuesday at the team’s Swope Park Training Center after the players have been addressed following an off-day Monday.
“Our shareholder group is thankful for Curt Onalfo’s service over the last two-and-a-half seasons, but we felt a change needed to be made,” OnGoal CEO and Wizards President Robb Heineman said. “We are committed to developing high-performance and consistency around our club.”
Onalfo finished with a 27-29-22 record in MLS play since taking over prior to the 2007 season. Assistant Coach Kris Kelderman has also been dismissed.
