[ECLIPSE SELECT] Chris King, Ohio Premier’s technical director, has been hired by Illinois powerhouse Eclipse Select as its director of coaching. King spent 14 years with Ohio Premier, whose U-18s won the 2013 ECNL title.
“We’re incredibly excited to be bringing in Chris King as an important piece of our Eclipse Select family at the start of the New Year,” Eclipse Select president Rory Dames said. “His coaching track record and success at developing elite youth players speaks for itself. For the past several years, we have always been of the mindset of bringing in Chris at some capacity with our club, so to see this come to fruition is really exciting for all of us.”
The 43-year-old King played in the indoor NPSL before going into coaching.
Mike Nesci, who has recently held the director of coaching role, has been appointed as the Eclipse Select vice president under Dames.
