Jans was hired by FC Cincinnati in August last year and previously coached teams in the Dutch and Belgian leagues. It comes from the Netherlands.
“When the club’s management was informed of the charge, we were very surprised that building a caring and committed culture was at the heart of Ron’s leadership,” said FC Cincinnati.
“We want to fully understand the nature of the incident and allow an environment in which our players can freely talk about any problems in the locker room. Therefore, while the Club and Major League Soccer work together, Ron will move away from the team during an investigation.”
FC Cincinnati said the team will not have further comments until the investigation is complete.
