FRISCO, Texas -- FC Dallas coach Schellas Hyndman is stepping down after failing to win a playoff game in the three years since he led the team to its only MLS Cup appearance.

Hyndman said Friday he made the decision after "a lot of thought and consideration."

After losing to Colorado in the 2010 MLS Cup, FC Dallas was swept in the first round of the playoffs the next year and was recently eliminated from postseason contention for the second straight year.

Hyndman's final home game will be Saturday against Seattle. FC Dallas ends the season Oct. 26 at San Jose.

The 63-year-old Hyndman is 62-57-58 in five seasons. He spent 31 years as a college head coach, including 24 at nearby SMU.
