The Columbus Crew and Kevin Molino have mutually agreed to terminate the midfielder’s contract. The 33-year-old departs after three seasons with the Black & Gold.
“On behalf of the Club, I would like to thank Kevin for his contributions to the Crew over the past three seasons. He is a talented and solid professional who brought good, positive energy to the team, on and off the field,” said Columbus Crew President and General Manager Tim Bezbatchenko. “After speaking with Kevin, we have agreed to allow him to pursue other opportunities. It’s been a pleasure to work with him, including winning an MLS title last season, and we wish him all the best in the future.”
Molino joined the Crew as a Free Agent on Jan. 7, 2021, and appeared in 31 regular season games (11 starts), scoring two goals and adding two assists. In the Crew’s 2023 postseason campaign, Molino made five appearances and provided two assists, including a right-footed ball to Cucho Hernandez, who headed it across the face of the goal to Christian Ramirez for the game-winning goal in the 115th minute of the Eastern Conference Final, propelling the Black & Gold to MLS Cup.
