Armas said: "From the bottom of my heart, I would like to thank the Fire for everything the team and organization have done for me during the past 11 years. My wife Justine and I have made the decision to move back to New York. The entire Fire organization and our devoted, enthusiastic fans have given me so many wonderful memories that I hold very close to my heart. I wish the Fire and the fans all the best."

Armas began his coaching career after retiring from his 12-year career in MLS - ten of which were spent with Chicago. The Fire acquired Armas in 1998.
