Jesse Marsch gets one-game suspension: Will not be on the bench vs Toronto FC

In the aftermath of the initial fine for the Montreal Impact at the Houston Dynamo game, Jesse Marsch also receives a one-game suspension. The MLS head coach was expelled from the Houston Dynamo game after arguing with the referee for the non-penalty call after a foul on Sanna Nyassi.

Jesse Marsch will not be on the bench for the game against Toronto FC . We should expect to see Mike Sorber to take over the head coaching duties for the game vs TFC.

MLS Disciplinary rules state that any coach expelled from a game will serve an automatic one-game suspension for his team`s next game in the same competition.

Official MLS ruling below

Coaches and staff:

Red cards are not issued to coaches. Referees may, at their discretion, dismiss a coach or other team staff member from the sideline due to inappropriate behavior during a game. Any coach dismissed will serve an automatic one-game suspension in the club's next match in the corresponding competition. A suspended coach will not enter the stadium tunnel area, Team Locker Room or field level until after conclusion of the game, at which point he may enter the Team Locker Room. He will not sit in the Press Box or grandstands. Upon arrival at the stadium, he will immediately be directed to and seated in a private suite or Club-provided reserved section. A suspended coach also will not be in communication with his Team during the course of the game.
