Terry Fisher, whose soccer roots go back to the North American Soccer League, has been named the Washington State Youth Soccer Association's executive director.

In 1975, at the age of 25, Fisher was named head coach of the Los Angeles Aztecs, becoming at the time the youngest head coach of any professional team in the United States.

His long history of involvement as a coach and executive in American soccer includes stints as a coach at UCLA in 1973 and more recently at Crystal Springs Uplands High School and Half Moon Bay High School in Northern California. He also coached the San Jose Earthquakes, Houston Hurricane and Calgary Boomers of the NASL and Detroit Lighting of the Major Indoor Soccer League.

He was owner and general manager of the USL's Palo Alto Firebirds in the early '90s, worked as sponsorship director for Major League Soccer's San Jose Clash, returned to the USL as general manager of the Albuquerque Geckos and most recently worked for the USL1's San Francisco Victory.

"This is a great step for soccer and for our association in adding Terry to our team," Washington Youth Soccer President Doug Andreassen said. "His experience with this game and his vision for growth and stability is what we need during a very dynamic time within our organization. We searched nationally for the best candidate and we feel we made the right choice in tapping Terry for the executive directorship. I look forward to working with him and welcoming into our soccer family."

Washington Youth Soccer boasts the sixth largest membership in U.S. Youth Soccer with over 128,000 players.
