MIAMI – Inter Miami’s tumultuous offseason has continued with the announcement that Diego Alonso will not be back as coach for the club’s second season.

Alonso got the team to the MLS Cup playoffs in 2020. That marked the seventh time that an expansion franchise reached the postseason.

But Inter Miami was routed by fellow expansion club Nashville in that playoff appearance, finished 10th in the Eastern Conference and wound up with a 7-13-3 record.

Last month, Paul McDonough stepped down as Inter Miami’s COO and sporting director.
