CINCINNATI (AP) Cincinnati head coach Ron Jans was forced out after an investigation by Major League Soccer found he'd used a racial slur in the locker room and made other troubling comments.

Jans resigned under late Monday after the team notified him he couldn't continue as coach. Jans had been suspended pending the investigation, which was prompted by a complaint from the MLS Players Association.

"The pattern of conduct of the former FC Cincinnati coach fell far short of acceptable standards, and created an untenable and unfair working environment for our players," Bob Foose, the executive director of the players' association, said in a statement Tuesday. "We appreciate the swift and thorough investigation conducted by the league into this matter."
