The Chicago Fire fired head coach Raphael Wicky on Thursday, a day after the MLS team beat New York City FC 2-0 for its first victory in a month.

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.

Chicago will resume play Sunday at Toronto FC.
