Orlando City Soccer Club has announced Chief Soccer Officer Armando Carneiro is leaving the club, less than two months after accepting the job.

In a press release, Orlando City Founder and President Phil Rawlins said, "We fully understand Armando's personal reasons for stepping down from his role and respect his wishes. We thank him for his help and wish him luck with his future career."

Carneiro's departure comes just two weeks after the club parted ways with General Manager Paul McDonough.

A press release from Orlando City said Phil Rawlins will take over those duties for the next several months until a new leader of soccer operations is recruited.
