Red Bulls head coach Jesse Marsch will leave the team to pursue other opportunities and assistant Chris Armas was promoted to Marsch's title, the team announced Friday.
Marsch led the Red Bulls to a 58-35-25 record in three and a half seasons and coached New York to a 10-4-2 record so far this season, second place in the Eastern Conference.
Armas, a 12-year MLS veteran who won the MLS Cup in 1998, takes over after having been on the Red Bulls' coaching staff since February 2015.
"On behalf of the entire organization, I'd like to thank Jesse for what he helped build here over the last few years," Red Bulls GM Marc de Grandpre said in a statement. "Chris has emerged as a leader in his own right, and embodies our core values on and off the field. We are excited for him to take this opportunity and know he will perfectly represent our club."
