Stuart Neely leaves TFC Academy


Toronto FC announced Monday that Stuart Neely has stepped down as the head of the club’s academy.

“We are disappointed to learn of Stuart’s resignation. He has contributed a great deal to our Academy program,” said Toronto FC Head Coach and Technical Director, Aron Winter, in a release. “Under Stuart’s watch, six players have joined the first team and he deserves a lot of credit for this accomplishment. On behalf of everyone at Toronto FC, I’d like to thank Stuart for his countless contributions and wish him well in his future endeavours.”

Neely was promoted to Academy head in January of 2011, and has been with the club since day one.

It was an offseason that looked to be one of stability for Toronto FC’s front office and coaching staff. But, once again, TFC will be searching to fill a vacancy. Academy coaches and former TFC players Danny Dichio and Jim Brennan just settled into their jobs last season, so the jury is out if either could take over as steward for the full program.

It was clear that Neely left of his own accord, and wasn’t pushed.
