Three days after the New York Red Bulls announced his departure as head coach, Jesse Marsch
was confirmed as a member of RB Leipzig coaching staff.
He will be an assistant under Ralf Rangnick
, the RB Leipzig sporting director who will work as head coach in 2018-19 and
then under Julian Nagelsmann,
who finishes up at Hoffenheim and takes over at Leipzig for the 2019-20 campaign.
"It was a decision we had to take time to think over,"
Rangnick said. "We have decided that I will take on the head coaching role myself, with the help of the best possible coaching staff. The goal is for me to be on the field for the training sessions
[while] we will redistribute some [internal] tasks to my sporting director."
