Koch getting dumped on by anonymous former players in this article in the Athletic.
"He doesn't have an identity"
"It was difficult and chaotic playing for him"
"His incompetence really came out in big games"
"Watching Cincinnati play in 2018 was a soul crushing experience".

Those are some absolutely brutal quotes. Strange to read, as I had heard nothing but good things about him. I thought he did a great job at WFC2.

Real classy!  How much turn over from last season was there??  Maybe 6-8 guys left from USL days??  Nobody was singing this song last year yet the article hints at it being a long term problem.

Now most of the team has no history with him and no loyalty.  I guess management figure the coach has to mold them into a team/build chemisty etc, but they didnt give him much of a chance to do it with almost a completely new roster.

With his track record of success, "incompetent" does not sound like the words from someone competent to judge!

Anyway, does anyone know what Koch's plans are - stay in pro or return to the college ranks? If he's patient and seeks it, I would expect he'd be able to get a nice Div I job, but he'd have to wait until November or so when they would open up. He'd also have to be the favourite to replace the 1st CPL coach fired if he wants to come home...
