SAN JOSE, Calif. -- The San Jose Earthquakes say they have reached a mutual agreement with Canadian coach Frank Yallop to part ways.

The struggling Earthquakes made the announcement Friday, while also saying that assistant coach Mark Watson would serve as interim head coach for the rest of the season.

At 3-6-6 with 15 points, the Earthquakes are in second-to-last place in the Western Conference.

Yallop says he met with president Dave Kaval and general manager John Doyle earlier in the week and "mutually agreed that it was time for the club and me to move in different directions."

In two stints, Yallop spent more than eight years with the Earthquakes, winning two MLS Cups during his initial time as coach from 2001-03, then coming back in 2008 when the team returned to the MLS.
