Chicago Fire To Announce New Head Coach On Thursday

↵

The Chicago Fire have scheduled a news conference for 1:00 on Thursday afternoon to announce their next head coach. Team officials haven't disclosed who the new coach will be, but rumors are that current interim coach Frank Klopas will become the permanent head coach.

Klapas took over the job after the Fire dismissed coach Carlos de Los Cabos in late May. The Fire had a very strong finish to the season with Klapas as the coach and almost made the playoffs after a terrible start to the season.

The new head coach will bet the sixth head coach in the history of the Chicago Fire.
