"He said the people are down-to-earth, they're hard working and they're honest. They're really excited about people who will contribute to the city." pic.twitter.com/drMW8c5qxl— Clayton Collier (@Local24Clayton) August 15, 2018
Mulqueen most recently worked for Orlando City after stints with the Kansas City Wizards and MetroStars. He also worked with U.S. national teams at the Olympics (2008), Under-20 World Cup (2007 and 2009) and Under-17 World Cup (2005 and 2007).
It was with the MetroStars where Mulqueen worked with Tim Howard. Mulqueen had discovered Howard, then 12, at a skills clinic in Metuchen, New Jersey. That connection led Mulqueen to Memphis. Howard now resides in the offseason in nearby Germantown and has supported the yet-to-be-named Memphis team.
“His eye for talent and his ability to inspire his players and teach the game is unmatched," said Howard. "His work ethic and character extend far beyond the pitch. I have no doubt that the city of Memphis will rally behind him and our team.”
