[USL PRO] Steve Trittschuh, who started for the USA at the 1990 World Cup, has been named the head coach of the Colorado Springs Switchbacks, who will begin USL PRO play in 2015.

“Steve Trittschuh came highly recommended by the USL PRO league offices and virtually every reference we called,” said Switchbacks President Nick Ragain in a statement. “Tritt has been at the center of soccer growth in America for the past 30 years including his play in the successful World Cup qualifying match in 1989 after a 40-year USA drought. He brings a wealth of knowledge, experience, and relationships to our club that will attract talented young players to help us compete.”

Trittschuh played for the USA the 1988 Seoul Olympics and 1990 World Cup in Italy and was the first American to play in the European Cup when he appeared with Sparta.

He played seven years in Major League Soccer and was an assistant coach with the Colorado Rapids for six seasons (2001-06). For the past several years, Trittschuh has coached with the top youth clubs in Colorado, most recently for the Colorado Storm.
