The Los Angeles Galaxy Academy hired Ante Razov to coach the Under-14 team.
The Los Angeles Galaxy have made a new hire for their under-14 team. Ante Razov was hired to serve as the team's head coach. Razov replaces Craig Harrington, who was their coach last season in their first year in the Southern California Development Soccer League. Harrington has moved on to coach the Galaxy U-16 squad.
For those unfamiliar with Razov, he played for the Galaxy in 1996. Razov was drafted by the Galaxy and scored a goal in six games. He then spent time with four other MLS teams, as well as playing for a period in Spain. He finished his career with 114 goals in 262 games, winning three U.S. Open Cup titles and an MLS Cup. Razov also played with the Chicago Fire, Columbus Crew, MetroStars and Chivas USA before hanging up his cleats in 2009, winning his MLS Cup with the Fire in 1998.
This is believed to be Razov's first coaching gig.
