Red Stripe Premier League leaders Montego Bay United has seen yet another head coach leaving before completion of a season.

The revolving door that has become the top job at the Western club will see Dr Dean Weatherly stepping in once again, to steer the team as Timothy Hankinson has parted ways with the Orville Powell owned football club.

Word had reached Yardie Sports some weeks ago that the club was struggling to pay the wages of the American born coach, so his resignation comes as no surprise.

The American who had assumed the job since August of 2015, is reportedly heading back to the American Major League Soccer.

During his short stint at the club, he led the team in their participation in the 2015 ScotiaBank CONCACAF Champions League and saw the team to just a single defeat and being atop of the ongoing Red Stripe Premier League.

Dr. Weatherly, who has played void filler in similar situations for the two previous seasons, will again called into action to continue stewarding the MBU ship for the remainder of the season.

Other clubs may be experiencing changes at the top very soon as Junior Francis confirmed to Yardie Sports that he has left FC Reno, where he began the season as head coach.

Thoughts are that Francis may return to his old stomping ground at Waterhouse FC, where former head coach, Anthony Patrick, has been filling the role temporarily.

Interestingly, at the RSPL game at Waterhouse on Sunday, Humble Lion Chairman Mike Henry, was seen in the company of coaches, Vassel Reynolds and Jeffery Maxwell, both of whom are presently coaching in the Manning Cup. Both coaches previously worked together at Hydel High school, where Maxwell is currently in charge.
