Slumping Crew has fans calling for Warzycha’s job, front office shakeup

When Robert Warzycha was a player with the Columbus Crew, he was a fan favorite.

They appreciated his hard work and team player mentally.

When he became an assistant coach, everybody knew he was being groomed for the head job in the future.

His first chance occured when Greg Andrulis was fired during the 2005 season and Warzycha became the interim head coach. The team played better under Warzycha than it did under Andrulis. Rumors had it that several players quit playing for Andrulis and wanted him gone.

In 2006, Sigi Schmid was brought in and he led the Crew to the 2008 MLS championship. after that season, Schmid left to coach the Seattle Sounders and enter Warzycha as the permanent head coach.

Warzycha has been successful as the head coach, but the Crew have missed the playoffs twice during his tenure and are in danger of missing them again in 2013.

The 2013 edition of the Crew is inconsistency,  key players injured, can’t win at home, can’t score goals and are too young.

The Crew use to be tough to beat at Crew Stadium. That is no longer the case. This year they’ve dropped 18 of a possible 30 points at home with a record of 3-4-3. They’ve been shutout three times at home. And to make matters worse, they’ve lost a couple of games late, one during stoppage time.

They’re missing key players with season-ending injuries in Eddie Gaven and Glauber’. They’ve also been without Jairo Arrieta, who has been on International duty with his home country Costa Rica.

Warzycha’s job seems to be safe according to Team president and general manager Mark McCullers. The Hunt Sports Group rarely will fire any coach in the middle of the season, although they’ve done it twice before.

Warzycha is in the final year of his contract. There is a two-year option that the club can exercise at the end of the year.

The team’s play will have to improve to keep fans in the stands. If the fans go away, management will have no choice but to make a coaching change because after all, this is a business as we all know.
