Daniel Hernandez and FC Dallas Part Ways

After three and a half seasons, FCD and Hernandez part ways

Some rather unexpected news came down yesterday as former FCD Captain Daniel Hernandez has parted ways with FC Dallas just three weeks after retiring and becoming a full-time assistant coach.

While the news is obviously very surprising, I can't say I'm shocked by the whole situation for a few reasons. Firstly, anyone who knew Hernandez knows he didn't really want to retire and still thinks there's plenty of tread on the tires. It has to be incredibly difficult to see the team bring other players into your position that you think you are the equal of.

Secondly, I thought it was interesting that Schellas Hyndman and Marco Ferruzzi were at the College Cup but not Hernandez, though that's probably reading into something that's not there.

Thirdly, Hernandez asked not to speak to the media after

It's impossible to know exactly what happened, if there was one big incident or just things weren't working out, but it's a very unfortunate situation. While Hernandez was certainly a bit rough around the edges, he was an enormous part of that locker room and someone who could motivate players on gameday like nobody else.

Schellas Hyndman had this to say about the situation:

In regards to the inquiries on the status of Daniel Hernandez, per team policy, we do not comment on employment matters," said Hyndman. "What I can tell you is that we appreciate everything Daniel has done for our club over the past three and a half seasons and we wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors
