Hyndman is glad to be doing it on his terms.
"I felt it was the best thing for the club, which is very important to me, that they go in a different direction," Hyndman told reporters Friday. "It is very difficult for me because I've coached for so many years. I love the competitive side, I love the teamwork, I love the training. It's come to a point in time [where] I think the team needs a different voice. I've not been able to bring the best out of them."
FC Dallas chairman Clark Hunt is disappointed to be losing Hyndman. Hunt played for Hyndman when he was the head coach at nearby Southern Methodist University.
"Today is a very sad day for our family," Hunt said. "I've known [Schellas] for 30 years, and he is somebody I have a tremendous amount of respect and admiration for and I am so thankful for his time at FC Dallas. When I hired him five-and-a-half years ago, I knew what a talent he was and it's been so fulfilling for me to have a chance to work with him personally and see him have the level of achievement that he did he with FC Dallas."
