A source close to the Wilmington Hammerheads has confirmed that head coach David Irving didn't travel with the team on their latest road trip to the West coast.
In Irving's place General Manager Jason Arnold and Technical Director Carson Porter will take over coaching duties.
There is no word on Irving's future with the team, and he couldn't be reached for comment.
Since July 1 the Hammerheads have struggled going just 1-5-2 over the eight games. The team is currently in 12th place in the USL Pro Standings, and has lost four straight matches.
The Hammerheads are scheduled to play Sacramento on Wednesday; the team will then face Orange County on Saturday and the LA Galaxy II on Sunday.
In 14 seasons with the Hammerheads Irving has led the team to one championship, and three regular season titles, and has compiled a 150-98-59 since 1999.
