Was his assistant. They parted ways which ultimately led to the opening for the Monarchs.

UNREALTED: Did it ever come out why Red Bull parted ways with Richie?

Always wondered about this and I hope someone can spill the beans since it's been more than 5 years since it happened. Was there more to it or was it just Backe/Soler cleaning house?

Richie and Des did not see eye to eye with Backe/Soler.

Not sure about Richie, but Des had been around quite a bit a couple years afterwards. He is still really close with Fernando Ruiz.

The story I've heard was that him and Des were specifically warned to stop going out and getting blitzed. They didn't listen, hence they were fired.

I honestly loved Mike Petke as our coach, it still kills me that they ruined a good thing. I think Petke's charisma and balls gave us a better shot in the playoffs.

I hope Red Bull never publicly answer this question truthfully.  Real reasons could be damaging to Mike's future prospects.

As if anyone would believe the RB BS.
"All he could do was win the Supporters Shield & beat D.C. in the playoffs. Curtis had to let him go, because Marsch is going to win USOC & MLS Cups!"


We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

The story I've heard was that him and Des were specifically warned to stop going out and getting blitzed. They didn't listen, hence they were fired.

Even O'Sack, never one to defend RB in anything, said he knew what happened, the firing was completely justified, and implied it to be something along the lines of what you describe.

It's nice that in 2017 former players can get a job within pro soccer that pays enough to take care of the family. This shows the growth of the game more than anything.

A potential replacement for Cassar ... if RSL continues to struggle.

RSL will win MLS Cup to the dismay of RBDG and to the "I told ya so" crowd at MF.

That would be insane. He barely coached the USL team.

Did management bring him in exactly for this situation??
