The North American Soccer League offseason has just begun, but on Wednesday, news of several coaching changes made the rounds. We've got news of three coaching changes from last season's eleven squads, or over 25% of the league.
First, Indy Eleven FC made their new boss official, confirming that Tim Hankinson would be taking over in Indianapolis.
Hankinson has worked extensively in the United States, with some of his stops including San Antonio Scorpions FC, The Tampa Bay Mutiny, and the Colorado Rapids.
Meanwhile, the Fort Lauderdale Strikers introduced Brazilian Caio Zanardi as their next head coach. Zanardi took over as general manager during the 2015 season, and will now be tasked with helping the Strikers make the playoffs for a third season running.
Finally, Minnesota United are reportedly shaking up the front office, with head coach Manny Lagos set to move upstairs. Taking over will be assistant coach Carl Craig, according to Northern Pitch.
With those three coaching situations now settled, we'll likely start to see a flurry of player movement involving those clubs. Stay tuned...
