Austin FC has given head coach Josh Wolff
a three-year contract extension.
Wolff, 45, was rewarded for Austin FC's great start to its second season in MLS. It's second in the Supporters’ Shield race with a 6-2-2 record. Its 22 goals are also second most in the league. (LAFC is first in both categories.)
Wolff signed as Austin FC’s head coach in November 2019, ahead of its launch in 2021 when it went 9-21-4 and finished 12th in the 13-team Western Conference. It didn't reach the 20-point mark that it attained on April 30 until the end of September in 2021.
The new contract runs through the 2025 season.
Wolff was previously an assistant coach on the U.S. national team under Gregg Berhalter
and before that with him at the Columbus Crew. Wolff and Berhalter were members of the 2002 and 2006 World Cup teams and played together for one season at
1860 Munich. Austin FC sporting director Claudio Reyna

The style of play and work ethic he has implemented, and his mentorship of our players has created a really strong culture around our club and led to an incredible amount of growth in a short period of time.”
