Sports Coach leaves Brazil's Santos 2 months into 3-year contract
Bruins acquire defenseman Mike Reilly from Senators
A good showing with Boston would certainly bolster his value heading into the open market but could also create an opportunity for him to stick around. Reilly is a pending unrestricted free agent with a $1.5 million salary and cap hit, which still leaves GM Don Sweeney some space with which to work before Monday’s trade deadline. The Bruins could still stand to add defensive depth in light of the injuries but they could also turn to try to add up front and add some secondary scoring, an element they’ve frequently coveted in recent deadlines.
SAO PAULO — Brazilian club Santos and coach Ariel Holan parted ways on Monday, only two months into a three-year contract.
The runner-up of the latest Copa Libertadores was struggling in local championships under the 60-year-old Holan.
The 60-year-old Holan decided to leave after angry fans let off fireworks in front of his apartment late Sunday, hours after Santos lost to Corinthians 2-0, club president Andres Rueda said in a news conference. Rueda said they agreed he should go.
The coach did not comment.
Holan finished his brief stint leading Santos to five losses, four wins and three draws.
Holan won the 2017 Copa Sudamericana with Argentina's Independiente. He also won last year's Chile first division with Universidad Catolica.
