Bruce Arena, MLS’s winningest coach, resigns after investigation

Bruce Arena, the winningest coach in MLS history, resigned from his post as head coach and sporting director of the New England Revolution on Saturday night — six weeks after he was placed on administrative leave amid allegations of insensitive and inappropriate remarks.

“I know that I have made some mistakes and moving forward, I plan to spend some time reflecting on this situation and taking corrective steps to address what has transpired,” Arena said in a statement issued by the Revolution. “And while this has not been an easy decision, I am confident that it is in the best interest of both the New England Revolution organization and my family that we part ways at this time.
