- Coaching Hires, Peter Nowak
Sounds like Philadelphia Union are set to announce their first head coach very soon. According to sources for SBI, the expansion club will name Peter Nowak as its first head coach at a press conference tomorrow.
Honestly this is a win-win coaching move for Philly. They get a coach with loads of experience and knowledge of what it takes to win it all in Major League Soccer. A lot of people believe his time with the national team over the last couple years has really helped him out with developing younger players.
I also like the hire because it gives Nowak and the Union plenty of time to begin working on a roster right away instead of waiting around until November. They can now spend most of the summer looking for talent to come either home to the US from overseas or scout out an important designated player to market the club behind.
I know some DC fans will hate this move and begin to hate this new club even more but to me its a great move.
What do you all make of Nowak leading the Union?
