MOST COMMENTED

[MLS]After the departure of president and CEO Shawn Hunter and head coach Martin Vazquez, Stephen Hamilton has stepped down as vice president of soccer operations at Chivas USA.

In his three seasons with Chivas USA, Hamilton oversaw the soccer side of the club, including its youth system.
 
He had previously served as director of team services at AEG Sports, where he oversaw as many as six MLS clubs at one time.

Hamilton, whose late brother, Doug, had been the president of the Los Angeles Galaxy, also has worked for MLS and adidas.
 
“Stephen has been a great asset for Chivas USA through his three years with the team, and all of us would like to thank him for his hard work and dedication,” said Chivas USA Investor-Operator Antonio Cue. “The team accomplished a lot during his tenure, including MLS playoff appearances two out of three seasons and qualifying for SuperLiga and Concacaf Champions League. More importantly, he helped lay the groundwork that will help us far into the future, through his development of the youth program and key signings to the first team.”

    @ Ric, thanks for the background insight details. It appears that there is some degreee of ongoing organizational turmoil going on with Chivas in light of the fact that they have yet to select a HC, leaving season ticket holders to wonder what is in store for the club's future. They could have made a bold move to retain Klinsmann but now that window has passed. Another move they could still do is to make the long-awaited name change a reality, Chivas Los Angeles instead of the generic "USA" (hint: most people without an agenda will still figure out that LA is a part of the USA). Finally, they need to bring in some legitimate DPs if they ever want to emerge from the shadow of the Galaxy. Also, it would be helpful if Mssrs. Vergara and Cue could use their influence within MLS to get the league to stop sabotaging the development of the USMNT (ex:supporting USSF's retention of Banal Bob and the "Team Bradley" approach) in favor of adding the technical and possession aspects of the Latin game into the US game (a much needed development IMHO).
