[MLS] Only eight days after the surprise announcement that he was leaving Penn State, where he had worked for 24 years, Barry Gorman has resurfaced as the FC Dallas technical director, where he joins colleague Schellas Hyndman, the FCD head coach.

A week ago, Hyndman gave hints that the MLS club's hiring of a technical director would come from the college ranks.

As technical director, Gorman will direct the club's player personnel operations, including international and domestic scouting, trades and acquisitions, player contracts and team administration.

He also will evaluate the development of FC Dallas Juniors prospects for the professional team.

"We are very excited to add Barry to the club, and look forward to his leadership as technical director," Hunt Sports Group Chairman Clark Hunt. "Barry's proven soccer acumen, coaching experience, and domestic, collegiate and international soccer relationships are a tremendous asset to FC Dallas. We are confident that he will do an outstanding job in his new role while working side-by-side with Coach Hyndman to reach our goal of winning championships."

Gorman and Hyndman were college coaching contemporaries and also worked together on NSCAA projects.

Gorman is Penn State's all-time winningest coach, having compiled a 266-158-42 overall record. He led the Nittany Lions to three Big Ten championships. Gorman's teams made 13 NCAA Tournament appearances, advancing four times to the round of 16 and twice to the national quarterfinals.

Gorman, a former NSCAA president, served as an assistant under legendary Walter Bahr for two years before being hired as Penn State's 10th head coach in program history in 1988.
 
Gorman played in Irish Football League in his native Northern Ireland before coming to play in the American Soccer League.

Gorman served as an assistant coach at Lock Haven College, coached ELCO High School and Division II power Davis & Elkins College before joining the Nittany Lions.
