Managers Ben Olsen and Marco Schallibaum may have been dismissed at the same time during Saturday night's Montreal-DC match, but the resulting discipline for their actions turned out to be very different.

On Friday MLS Commissioner Don Garber rescinded Olsen's automatic one-game suspension and fine, while handing Schallibaum an additional game and extra $5,000 fine on top of the automatic one-game ban "for his repeated misbehavior."
Saturday's sending-off wasn't the first infraction committed by Schallibaum, who's in his first year in MLS. The Swiss manager has been sent off in a total of three matches in 2013 and was also suspended for entering the field of play against the Colorado Rapids.
Olsen and Schallibaum engaged in their heated confrontation following a hard aerial challenge between DC's James Riley and Montreal's Justin Mapp, which sent the latter clattering into the midfield camera. Referee Ismail Elfath issued a yellow card to Riley and dismissed both Olsen and Schallibaum.
A third coach was also sanctioned on Thursday with the MLS Disciplinary Committee fining Chicago Fire assistant Leo Percovich an additional $500 "for his improper sideline behavior" in an altercation with Revolution forward Saer Sene that led to his dismissal in Saturday's New England-Chicago match. Because of his dismissal, Percovich was fined a total of $1,000 and will serve an automatic one-game suspension on Friday against Sporting Kansas City.
