Jurgen Klinsmann was "relieved of his duties" as head coach of the U.S. Men’s National Team Monday, U.S. Soccer announced.
Jurgen has been in charge of the national team since 2011.
U.S. Soccer President Sunil Gulati released a statement on the decision, saying: "We want to thank Jurgen for his hard work and commitment during these last five years. He took pride in having the responsibility of steering the program, and there were considerable achievements along the way."
According to USA Today, Klinsmann has been under increased pressure since the team lost consecutive matches to Mexico and Costa Rica in November.
Despite recent losses, the 52-year-old coach led the U.S. men's team to a Gold Cup in 2013 and past the group stage of the World Cup the following year, according to the Bleacher Report.
In his statement, Gulati mentioned Klinsmann's many successes as the head coach.
"Many are aware of the historic victories, including leading us out of the Group of Death to the Round of 16 in the 2014 FIFA World Cup, but there were also lesser publicized efforts behind the scenes," Gulati said in a statement. "He challenged everyone in the U.S. Soccer community to think about things in new ways, and thanks to his efforts we have grown as an organization and expect there will be benefits from his work for years to come."
At this point, there is no word on Klinsmann's replacement, although Sam Borden of the New York Times reported that Bruce Arena is the likely choice.
Grant Wahl of Sports Illustrated also said Arena was set to take over. He tweeted saying the announcement could come as soon as Tuesday.
