[AMERICANS ABROAD] Tim Hankinson, who has coached in MLS, the USL and the collegiate ranks and whose globetrotting has taken him to Iceland and Guatemala, is off to India to coach Goa's Salgaocar FC, which won promotion to the 2009-10 I-League First Division.

Hankinson was most recently the men's head coach at Division II power Ft. Lewis. He made a name for himself as head coach of Alabama A&M during its heyday as a D1 power and also coached at DePaul and Syracuse.

He worked in the USL and MLS's Project-40 program before coaching MLS's Tampa Bay Mutiny and Colorado Rapids. He also coached in the Icelandic Second Division.

"Tim Hankinson coming to India will enrich this country's footballing culture," agent Eddie Rock told indiafootball.com.

Located on India's west coast, Goa has a strong Portuguese influence and is noted for its beaches.

Salgaocar, one of six Goan teams in the I-League, has recently signed Brazilians Luciano Sabrosa and Alexandre D'Silva and Nigerian Chigbo Offor for the 2009-10 season.
