[MLS] Kurt Schmid, the 26-year-old son of head coach Sigi Schmid, has been named to the Seattle Sounders FC staff as a scout and assistant coach.

Schmid is charged with scouting players from the youth to international level and coordinate the Match Analysis scouting system. And he will serve as a first-team assistant coach to Sigi Schmid.

For the past three seasons, Kurt Schmid has been an assistant coach at the collegiate level, first at Saint Mary's College, then the past two years at UC Irvine.

"We are very excited to have Kurt join our staff," said Sounders FC technical director Chris Henderson. "He will be working with the full team on down through the youth and assisting with scouting. Coming from a soccer family and with coaching experience at many levels, he has good knowledge of young players and he will be a big asset for our club."

Kurt Schmid was a member of the Region IV ODP boys coaching staff the past two years and also coached at West Coast FC. Previously he was a coach for South Bay Soccer Club. His coaching career began at South High School in Torrance, Calif. He played at Wake Forest and UCLA and is a graduate of UCLA with a degree in Business-Economics.
