Vlatko Andonovski resigned as coach of the U.S. women's national team on Wednesday in the aftermath of an epic and disappointing early exit from the Women's World Cup, multiple outlets reported.
U.S. Soccer is finalizing a deal with assistant coach Twila Kilgore as interim head coach, The Athletic reported.
The women's team suffered its earliest exit ever from the World Cup in a loss to Sweden on penalty kicks in the Round of 16.
Andonovski, 46, also helmed a lackluster showing in the 2021 Olympics in Tokyo, piloting the squad to a bronze medal.
Andonovski's contract was set to expire at the end of this calendar year, Yahoo Sports reported. He finishes with a 51-5-9 record since taking over for Jill Ellis in 2019. He was just 3-2-5 in major tournaments.
Ellis led the USWNT to back-to-back World Cup titles.
Andonovski is already drawing interest at the international and club levels, per The Athletic.
Kilgore joined the team as an assistant in February 2022.
Soccer news outlet 90min first reported Andonovski's resignation.
