Head Coach Raphael Wicky Fired By Chicago Fire

CHICAGO (CBS/AP) -- The Chicago Fire won their game against the NYCFC on Wednesday, but pardon Head Coach Raphael Wicky if he is not in a celebratory mood a day later.

Wicky was fired just hours after the win.

The team said they wanted to wait until after the team's three-match homestand to make the move.

Assistant coach Frank Klopas will direct the club on an interim basis while the team searches for a replacement. Klopas was head coach from 2011-13.

The Fire are 7-15-6 this season. They were 12-25-14 in two seasons under Wicky.
