U.S. men's national team coach Jurgen Klinsmann has been relieved of his duties, U.S. Soccer announced Monday.

In charge of the national team since 2011, Klinsmann has been under increased pressure since the U.S. lost 4-0 to Costa Rica on Tuesday.

"Many are aware of the historic victories, including leading us out of the Group of Death to the Round of 16 in the 2014 FIFA World Cup, but there were also lesser publicized efforts behind the scenes," U.S. Soccer president Sunil Gulati said in a statement. "He challenged everyone in the U.S. Soccer community to think about things in new ways, and thanks to his efforts we have grown as an organization and expect there will be benefits from his work for years to come."
