America Coach  Bruce Arena on Friday resigned from his position as United States manager following the team’s failure to qualify for the 2018 World Cup.

The U.S. finished fifth in CONCACAF’s Hexagonal table after losing 2-1 to Trinidad and Tobago on the region’s final matchday as both Honduras and Panama moved ahead of the Americans in the standings and left the team out of the World Cup for the first time since 1986.

“It is the greatest privilege for any coach to manage their country’s National Team, and as I leave that role today I am honored and grateful to have had that opportunity twice in my career,” Arena, 66, said in a statement.
