Carlos Hernandez

Change is afoot at Orlando Pride. The Head Coach of the Orlando Price, Marc Skinner, has resigned. He will be pursuing a coaching opportunity outside of the National Women’s Soccer League. Assistant coach Carl Green will also depart the soccer Club. Green will coach the Pride on Saturday, July 24th against OL Reign, with the Club’s interim head coach announced in the near future.

Skinner compiled a record of 9-23-11 across all competitions. The Englishman joined the Pride after two seasons managing Women’s Super League side Birmingham City and, to start the 2021 regular season, guided Orlando to a seven-game unbeaten run, the best start in the Club’s history.

“I have tremendous gratitude and appreciation for the vision Marc and Carl brought to the Orlando Pride and I thank them for their commitment to the Club and the players during their time in Orlando,” Orlando Pride EVP Amanda Duffy said.

“Under Marc’s guidance, the Pride have become a better team and a better organization, with a foundation in place for the continuation of a winning culture. I wish both of them much success in their next opportunity.”

“I am immensely proud to have been the head coach of Orlando Pride. I want to thank the players, staff and Club for all of their efforts in creating a culture worthy of this city and state. To the fans, I thank you for being patient whilst we grew together. You will continue to drive this team to achieve the heights that you all deserve,” Skinner said.

“I have no doubt that this Club will go from strength to strength with the new ownership in place and the values that the team have worked hard to develop. Although I will be watching from afar, the iconic purple team will always remain close to my heart. For the final time, #VamosOrlando.”
