MLS: Fusion names Dallas assistant Cordoba as head coach

The Miami Fusion has confirmed Carlos "Cacho" Cordoba as its head coach. Cordoba, the top assistant coach for the Dallas Burn the last two years, has more than eight years of coaching experience, including four years at the professional level. Prior to joining the Burn, Cacho was the head coach of the USISL's Milwaukee Rampage during the 1995 season, leading the club to a 17-3 regular season mark and a berth in the Sizzlin' Nine. "Cacho has all of the qualities we were looking for in a head coach," Fusion GM Leandro Stillitano said. "He has a strong knowledge of the American player and the inner workings of MLS. He also brings to us an international background, including his fluency in Spanish and Italian." A native of Buenos Aires, Cordoba spent seven seasons with Boca Juniors and one year apiece at Union Santa Fe and Huracan. He then moved to the United States, where he played seven years indoors with the MISL's Los Angeles Lazers, Kansas City Comets and San Diego Sockers and NPSL's Milwaukee Wave.
