Jamaica soccer coach resigns after latest loss

Wednesday - 6/12/2013, 8:40pm  ET

KINGSTON, Jamaica (AP) -- Theodore Whitmore has resigned as Jamaica's soccer coach amid a World Cup qualifying losing streak.

Jamaica Football Federation President Horace Burrell announced the move Wednesday.

Jamaica lost 2-0 to Honduras on Monday following losses to Mexico and the U.S.

Burrell says a "coach's tenure depends on the results" and the team's performance under Whitmore has "not been good." He says a new coach will be in place in the next few days.
