Toronto FC head coach Ryan Nelsen dug his own grave.

The Reds have called on media to attend a 4 p.m. press conference Sunday at their Downsview training facility, where general manager Tim Bezbatchenko is expected to announce Nelsen has been dismissed following a 3-0 loss to New England Saturday at BMO Field.

Nelsen publicly called out his general manager during a post-game rant after Bezbatchenko challenged his team to perform down the stretch.

Toronto FC's bench boss decried his GM's attempts to motivate the squad, saying Bezbatchenko's decision to put pressure on his team "absolutely" didn't help matters.

The Reds (9-9-6) remain in the playoff picture with back-to-back games against Philadelphia.

There's no indication as to who will manage Toronto FC the rest of the way.
