Forward Madison FC parts ways with head coach Daryl Shore

Forward Madison FC announced today that the Club has mutually agreed to part ways with Technical Director and Head Coach Daryl Shore. Shore’s contract ran through the end of the 2020 season. FMFC has started an international search and is seeking a diverse candidate pool to find the next leader of their technical staff.

“We would like to thank Daryl for his help in launching Forward Madison,” Forward Madison Chief Operating Officer/ Owner Conor Caloia said. “We will be forever grateful for his time and effort in getting this Club off the ground. Daryl is a true professional and we wish him nothing but the best in his future endeavors.”

“Our ownership and our fans have high expectations for this Club,” Caloia said. “We are committed to bringing a USL League One championship to our great fans in Madison and beyond.”

After making the USL League One playoffs in 2019, Forward Madison finished the 2020 campaign in seventh place in the table with a 5-5-6 mark. In two seasons, Shore was 17-14-13 with the Madison side.

"I am grateful to the ownership group for giving me the opportunity to be the first head coach and technical director of Forward Madison FC,” Shore said. “I would like to thank my staff, the players, the front office, and the fans for all of their support during my time with the club. I am proud of the groundwork we laid during these first two seasons to establish a culture and high standards, and I feel good about the direction the club is heading. Lastly, I wish everyone involved the best of luck for many many years to come."
