  • Coaching Hires, Curt Onalfo, Richie Williams

This may come to be a bit of a surprise to most that follow DC United. According to Steve Goff the club has removed interim New York manager Richie Williams from their shortlist of coaches that they are looking to hire.

Goff says the club is looking to make a hire this week and is looking currently at former Kansas City manager Curt Onalfo, some college coaches and some from overseas.

If you ask me this is quite a shocking development. For months I’ve been under the impression that Williams was the guy for DC. I wonder what changed along the way or if Williams himself decided not to head to DC. My guy feeling is if Onalfo isn’t the guy then DC turns to a college coach here.

    You left Fraser off your list. He's a pretty strong candidate, IMO. Also, Williams being removed from consideration probably has more to do with NY than it had to do with DC. He had said in the past that he would like to stay with NY, and I think any reasonable offer from them would be enough for him to remain with the team.
