The Rowdies, who fired coach Thomas Rongen on Friday morning, waited less than a week to find his replacement. Tampa Bay named Stuart Campbell, who served as the interim coach during Saturday's 3-1 home loss to Minnesota, the new head coach on Wednesday.Campbell, a former player for the Rowdies, transitioned to a full-time assistant last season. He said he is still getting used to being the head coach. "That's a bit of an understatement," Campbell, 37, said. "So far, the guys have been very supportive and have worked very hard to get back to winning. We all know we've got to play better."The Rowdies have been mired in an extended slump that has them in last place (2-6-1) during the fall season, but they're fourth in the overall standings. The Rowdies play at Ottawa on Saturday.Campbell said there is no instant cure for the team's slump, but he said he believes his players are good enough to remain a playoff team."In our matches lately we have been giving up goals in transition," Campbell said. "We need to prevent that and start getting some clean sheets (no goals)."On Friday, the team also fired general manager Farrukh Quraishi. Owner Bill Edwards had said he would take his time in finding a replacement for Quraishi, and he believes Campbell is the right choice as head coach."I have full confidence in Stuart's ability to coach this team to victory," Edwards said in a news release. "Stuart has been an integral part of the club since his arrival and has earned the respect of his players. He will lead with the stability and unity necessary to win."
