"Let's talk about women. Cabrera in the dynamo wilmer the fourth with coach to lose his job this season houston. They've struggled. They lost their last four to eleven and one in the last fourteen ten losses in their last twelve. That's not good made. The playoffs in two thousand seventeen when you took over did not make the playoffs last year but they didn't win u._s. Open cup looks like they will not make the playoffs this year they're six point out and there are fading and wilmer is no longer the head coach as a result thirty to thirty nine and twenty two is his record as the head coach of the dynamo and now to help us understand the decision is matt jordan the general general manager of the club. It's our a._t. And t. call to the field matt. How's it going. Hey guys. I'm doing andrew david charlie susannah. Thank you very much rob me on. I appreciate it. We appreciate russia you coming on and remembering everyone's name well done well done. Let's dive right in here. Of course the big news. Wilmer cabrera dismisses the head coach of the dynamo. Why why let wilmer go and why now yeah look. It was a very difficult decision. We have as a club that tremendous amount of respect and appreciation tation for everything the wilmer has done in the last two and a half years is the head coach of of the dynamo <hes> really coming off his last road trip <hes> in communication with our ownership group our board <hes> we collectively felt that it was the the right time to make this decision <hes> and really now how with with this being a challenging week with change comes opportunity so now the focus has shifted to supporting davey and the south the players as they prepare for the game this weekend against colorado. We know that the results especially recently we're not there. Is this strictly strictly results. Excuse me is there a coaching issue the way that you guys were getting x._y._z. out of your talent. Is it a roster problem well. What was the big issue here that led to wilmer just not getting what he needed to stay on the job. Well you know i think that you know wilmer the whole staff of i've been putting a lot of work into things <hes> in looking at really from the end of made the beginning of june we dropped eleven of fourteen games in m._l._s. play and we were three twelve and two in all competitions and and you know looking at everything holistically you know we we have the best start in club history this year <hes> and and we're off to a good start. Obviously we had a tough off last couple of months but i don't think anybody feels that <hes> the results. The last couple of months is a reflection of the quality of the roster. You know it's it's been challenging and there's a lot of factors. There's that play into this you know and so <hes> you know and obviously you had you know the the dog days of summer and the m._l._s. and everything that you guys guys no real well <hes> but really collectively felt that this was the right time to texas decision and and we wish wilmer nothing but the best moving forward so matt that tell us where are you at in the interview process right now for the next coach has begun already. Yeah well really once once you. You know any change like that occurs. I mean you're you know everybody is reaching out to your phone's blowing up and and we've had a tremendous amount of interest in that position i i think the key at the moment is is that we want to focus you know you you really wanna make sure that the group is has all the communication necessary a and and the coaches and davey in particular how to support to prepare for the weekend i think for us what's important is we're not going to rush into any decisions. We're not gonna make any reactionary harry decisions. We're gonna take our time. We're going to do our due diligence and it's going to be a very detailed process. You know we have a lot of you know key characteristics. We're we're gonna keep in mind that we're gonna evaluate as we're going through this process. You mentioned the due diligence. What have you learned from the past processes. You've been a part of hiring wilmer. Hiring is up in montreal as well and what are those characteristics. You're looking for well. I think the most important thing is that you have to find a head coach that that fits within the strategic plan of the club and within your within our core values that just strong leader <hes> and for us also understands understands our structures. You know we obviously we put a lot of work in our kademi are u._s. L. setup and a first team you know so i think a big part of this and we we believe big part of this is also the next candidate is committed to continuing to build on the infrastructure. That's in place and shows that level of commitment to to build build a culture of development. Those are the key factors that that were were focusing on in this process and and we'll take our time <hes> you know we're we're very fortunate that davey the <hes> you know is someone is very well respected in the locker room and amongst the staff and with the club and he's he's ready to do whatever possible all the help support. The club meetings very hard working. He's very committed got strong strong values <hes> and most importantly. He's got a growth mindset <hes> so i think i think that you know he's he's stepped right in you know and and is doing everything catalog with his staff and our support shop to help the guys prepare for this weekend matt. Is there so anyway that davy arnaud could win this job if he's to guide them to the playoffs. After this rough start <hes> you know towards the middle of the season. Could he's still win this job yet. Charlie no davey for sure is gonna be inconsideration for for the job <hes> you know and while we're we're doing and we're doing a very detailed search as well. <hes> and i think you know we feel we feel. We've got a good roster. I mean this is the same roster that had the best start in club history the street and i'd argue we were one of the most aggressive teams in the summer transfer window with the trades of christian ramirez nico hanson and the transfer of opposed jose bislama who's up and coming with the knossos team so we're not sitting back and and resting on anything you know we got a good group. We've got a good team. <hes> and these new editions we feel will give us a boost to make a good push and yeah davey will will be considered for the role as well davies a certain kind of candidate a guy from within the"
