Theodore Whitmore Resigns as Jamaica Coach


Jamaica sits at the bottom of their group in CONCACAF for World Cup qualifying after consecutive losses to Mexico, the United States and Honduras. Following the unfortunate run, head coach Theodore Whitmore has decided to step down and resign from his position with the Reggae Boyz.

Whitmore is a former player that played for Jamaica at the 1998 World Cup, but his team has netted just one goal in their past six outings, which clearly needs to be improved.  

“Following a meeting, coach Whitmore took the decision to tender his resignation,” Jamaica Football Federation president Horace Burell said.

“A coach’s tenure depends on the results. Admittedly, the results over the past months have not been goodHence I have, without any reservation accepted coach Whitmore’s resignation.”

Jamaica still has a long shot to qualify for the 2014 World Cup in Rio, but the odds are certainly not in their favor.

There is no word yet on who will take over Whitmore’s position.
