OTTAWA, Oct. 18 (Xinhua) -- Two days after Canada was eliminated from the 2014 World Cup CONCACAF qualifying zone, Stephen Hart has resigned as the head coach, said Canadian Soccer Association on Thursday.
Victor Montagliani, president of the CSA, confirmed that Hart had quit.
Canada, who needed a tie or win to advance to next year's six-nation finals in North and Central America and the Caribbean, lost 8-1 to Honduras on Tuesday.
The seven-goal loss was its largest margin since an 8-0 defeat at Mexico in 1993.
Hartan, who had an interim stint in 2006-07 and was hired in December 2009, managed Canada to a 20-15-10 record.
