Iceland coach steps down after 7 years in charge
REYKJAVIK, Iceland (AP) The coach that led Iceland to its first World Cup has stepped down.
The Icelandic Football Association says Heimir Hallgrimsson has decided to leave at his own request, ending seven years in the role.
Hallgrimsson was the co-coach with Lars Lagerback of Sweden at the European Championship in 2016, when Iceland reached the quarterfinals after beating England.
After Lagerback left, Hallgrimsson assumed sole control of the national team, which became the least populous team to ever play at a World Cup. Iceland drew with Argentina in its opening group game but failed to advance to the knockout stage.
Hellgrimsson is a part-time dentist.
