Struggling Revolution fire coach Friedel

Greg Bartram-USA TODAY Sports

After consecutive lopsided losses by five-goal margins, the New England Revolution fired coach Brad Friedel on Thursday.

Including Wednesday night’s 5-0 loss to the Chicago Fire and Saturday’s 6-1 defeat to the Philadelphia Union, the last-place Revs (2-8-2, eight points) have conceded a league-high 30 goals and have an MLS-worst minus-19 goal differential.

Assistant coach Mike Lapper was named interim head coach while the club searches for a permanent replacement.

Friedel, 47, was hired ahead of the 2018 season and leaves with a 12-21-13 record.

Lapper, 48, joined the New England staff last season. He has been an assistant coach with the Columbus Crew (2005-13) and at West Virginia University (2013-17).

Friedel is the third MLS coach to be relieved of his duties this season. The Colorado Rapids dismissed Anthony Hudson last week, and FC Cincinnati fired Alan Koch on Tuesday.
