Frank Yallop is set to be named the new manager of the Chicago Fire, multiple sources have confirmed to ESPNFC.com.

Yallop's imminent hiring comes just a day after Frank Klopas was let go as the Fire's manager, and just four months after he parted company with the San Jose Earthquakes. Goal.com first reported Yallop's hiring.

Klopas' departure was part of a management purge by Fire owner Andrew Hauptman with Chicago's President of Soccer Operations Javier Leon also on his way out.

Yallop is a two-time MLS Coach of the Year, who won two MLS Cups and one Supporters Shield in two different stints with the Earthquakes. He has also spent time as manager of Canada's national team and the Los Angeles Galaxy. His career record in MLS stands at 158-141-99.
