Memphis 901 FC Dismisses Head Coach Tim Mulqueen
MEMPHIS, Tennessee - Memphis 901 FC has announced that Head Coach Tim Mulqueen has been relieved of his coaching duties and Assistant Coach Ben Pirmann has been named Interim Head Coach effective immediately.
"Tim was the first coach in 901 FC history and we are incredibly grateful for his countless hours and dedication to the club," said Principal Owner, Peter B. Freund, "That said, our goal from day one has been to build a winning culture and compete for a USL Championship and so far we have fallen short."
Mulqueen was named the Head Coach of Memphis 901 FC on August 15, 2018, prior to the team's launch in the spring of 2019. Under Mulqueen, 901 FC registered 11 wins, 11 draws and 24 losses in just under two USL Championship Seasons.
"Mulch's belief and hard work never wavered as he took on the task of leading 901 FC from its inception. We are proud that he will always be the first head coach in our franchise's history," said Sporting Director Tim Howard. "Unfortunately, the results have fallen short of our expectations. I wish Mulch nothing but the very best in his future coaching endeavors. The Club will quickly move forward in conducting an international search for our next Head Coach."
Pirmann, joined 901 FC on December 13, 2018 after spending six seasons as the head coach of Detroit City FC and eight seasons as an assistant coach at his alma mater, Michigan State University.
