KINGSTON, Jamaica -- Theodore Whitmore has resigned as Jamaica's soccer coach amid a World Cup qualifying losing streak.

Jamaica Football Federation President Horace Burrell announced the move Tuesday.

Jamaica lost 2-0 to Honduras on Tuesday following losses to Mexico and the U.S.

Burrell says a "coach's tenure depends on the results" and the team's performance under Whitmore has "not been good." He says a new coach will be in place in the next few days.
