NEW YORK — Sky Blue FC announced on Friday Denise Reddy has been fired as the team’s head coach, effective immediately. Sky Blue currently sits last place in the National Women’s Soccer League.
Reddy joined the club ahead of the 2018 season after spending two years as an assistant coach with the Washington Spirit, and previous head coaching roles in Sweden and Denmark. Her tenure will be remembered for the abysmal record the team had under her leadership, winning just once in her 33 matches in charge. The victory came on the final day of the 2018 season against the Orlando Pride.
Over the course of her season-and-a-half in charge, Sky Blue had showed some signs of improvement, conceding fewer goals and managing more meaningful possession, but the team continued to struggle in a league where most of the opponents were obviously better.
Sky Blue has earned two points this season, and ended last season with nine. Overall, her record as Sky Blue coach was 1-8-24.
The club also announced that an “external search” for Reddy’s replacement has already begun.
