Monterrey coach quits as sack race quickens

MONTERREY, Mexico, Sept 26 (Reuters) - Monterrey coach Miguel Herrera quit on Wednesday, becoming the fourth to lose his job since the Mexican season started last month.

Herrera, who had been in charge since 2004, left following the previous night's 3-0 defeat by Tecos UAG which left his side with nine points from as many games in the Apertura championship.

'I did the best I could, but I'm sad and disappointed that I couldn't give these great fans the title they deserved,' he told reporters.

Herrera's departure came only five days after Ruben Omar Romano quit Guadalajara-based Atlas.

The other coaches to lose their jobs were Dario Franco at Tecos UAG and Victor Manuel Vucetich at Chiapas.
