Chris Hummer has stepped down as general manager of the Washington Spirit to focus on his soccer business, he confirmed to The Equalizer.
The news, originally reported by the Washington Post’s Steve Goff, comes after the Spirit finished 3-14-5 (14 pts.), in last place in the NWSL’s inaugural season. Mike Jorden was fired as coach on June 30 and Mark Parsons took over five games into what would become a 13-game winless streak for Washington.
Hummer, who runs SoccerWire.com and handles communications and public relations for elite youth soccer clubs, leagues and tournaments, said it was time to focus on his business.
“I have more leads than we can handle and current clients begging for more of my personal attention,” he said via text message. “I don’t want to get in the way of the next stage of growth for the Spirit by trying to handle both roles.”
