Montreal Impact Make Coaching Switch

USL's Montreal Impact announced that Marc Dos Santos will take over as interim head coach, replacing John Limniatis. Under Limniatis in 2009 the Impact has struggled for results, winless in its first four regular-season games (0-3-1) and shut out 1-0 by Toronto FC, Wednesday, in its first game of the Nutrilite Canadian Championship. According to club technical director Nick De Santis, Limniatis will "remain in the Impact family" as he "continues to be one of our great team builders." Under Limniatis, the Impact reached the quarterfinals of last season's Concacaf Champions League.

Before joining the Impact in 2008, Dos Santos was the head coach of the Impact's reserve team Trois-Rivières Attak for two seasons, in 2007 and 2008. He also took training internships with three first division clubs in Portugal: Boavista FC (November 2004), SC Beira Mar (November 2004) and FC Porto (March 2007). "It's an honor for me to become interim head coach for the Impact," said Dos Santos. "I am ready today to take on these new responsibilities. It's a great challenge in my coaching career and it's a mandate in which I will invest myself fully. I have acquired a solid experience in the last years with the Impact and the Attak, as well as in Portugal. I will do everything I can for the team to be successful again."

Dos Santos becomes the eighth head coach in Impact history. He will coach his first game this Friday when the Impact will face the Charleston Battery at 7:30 pm (Radio-Canada, CKAC Sports, TEAM 990, USLlive.com).
