Clavijo joins Dallas as technical director

MOST COMMENTED

[MLS SPOTLIGHT] Fernando Clavijo is back in MLS as technical director of FC Dallas. The former U.S. national team defender had been head coach at New England (2000-02) and Colorado (2005-08) and most recently worked executive director of soccer for Traffic Sports USA, the American arm of the South American player agency.

Clavijo, who earned 61 caps for the U.S. national team and was elected to the National Soccer Hall of Fame, fills the position left vacant by the departure of Barry Gorman.

Gorman had left his head coaching position at Penn State to join former college colleague Schellas Hyndman, the FCD head coach, in Frisco in April 2010.

But Gorman left in November 2011 after Dallas failed to repeat its 2010 season when it reached the MLS Cup final.

Some of the moves the club made did not pan out. It left Dax McCarty available in the 2010 Expansion Draft and the players it got for Eric Avila and Eric Alexander last season are now gone.

    Clavijo's management record speaks for itself, abysmal.
