Orlando Pride’s Marc Skinner reportedly moving to Manchester United


Orlando Pride head coach Marc Skinner is reportedly getting a new job.

According to reports, Skinner is on his way to Manchester United to take over the women’s coaching gig and replace Casey Stoney. Stoney was recently named head coach of San Diego’s NWSL team.

When asked about the alleged move, the Orlando Pride offered up “no comment on the situation.”

Skinner has been with the Pride since 2019 and is 9-12-22 in his time at the helm of Orlando.

The Pride have so far exceeded expectations in 2021 and are currently tied for third in the standings with 16 points. Dating back to the 2021 NWSL Challenge Cup, the franchise earlier matched a record-all-time unbeaten run of nine games, while forward Sydney Leroux has made a case for league MVP.
