MLS's Red Bulls name Montgomery to head youth program

MLS club Red Bull New York named long-time Adelphi coach Bob Montgomery as its Director of Youth Development to oversee its player development system.

"Bob brings a wealth of experience and leadership to a position that will be extremely important in the future development of Red Bull players," said Red Bull New York Technical Director Jeff Agoos. "We are extremely excited to include Bob as a resource in our organization."

Montgomery coached Adelphi for 29 seasons, posting a 258-224-39 record and taking seven of his teams to the NCAA tournament. His 1987 squad made it all the way to the quarterfinals.

In 2006, Montgomery led the Panthers to their first Atlantic Soccer Conference regular-season and tournament titles. Montgomery has also served as an Associate Athletic Director since 1989, where he was responsible for compliance and eligibility.

He has been active in the Region I ODP program.

Like Red Bulls head coach Bruce Arena, Montgomery attended Nassau Community College. He then transferred to Adelphi and was a defender for the Panthers in 1972-73.

Former MLS star and Venezuela international Giovanni Savarese started the MetroStars' youth program but was fired after Red Bull took control.

Savarese's replacement, Russian Armen Simoniants, was quickly fired when inaccuracies were revealed in his resume, notably his claims about his past experience with the MetroStars.
