By The Associated Press

Former Iceland coach Heimir Hallgrímsson has been hired to coach Jamaica’s men’s national soccer team. He replaced Paul Hall, who quit in June after CONCACAF Nations League matches against Mexico and Suriname. Hall was hired after Theodore Whitmore left in December, eight matches into World Cup qualifying. The 55-year-old Hallgrímsson was on the coaching staff of Iceland’s national team from 2013-18. The former defender coached Qatar’s Al-Arabi from 2018-21. Jamaica plays Argentina in an Sept. 27 exhibition at Harrison, New Jersey.
