TORONTO (AP) Toronto FC fired manager Ryan Nelsen on Sunday.
Greg Vanney, head of TFC Academy, was selected as Nelsen's replacement. Jason Bent has been offered a position to remain with club, while five other assistants were let go.
Nelsen and general manager Tim Bezbatchenko were reportedly at odds with the rookie GM flexing his muscle in the wake of news that MLSE CEO Tim Leiweke, a champion of Nelsen and the team, is planning to leave.
