The Swope Park Rangers announced today that Marc Dos Santos has been named the head coach for the inaugural season.
Dos Santos, native to Montreal, comes over from the Ottawa Fury FC in the NASL where he won Coach of the Year and led his squad to the Championship. This upcoming season will be his 10th season as a manager in a career that has seen a lot of success. He led the Impact through three different lower division leagues and to a 08-09 CONCACAF Champions League berth. And he even spent time in Brazil working with youth clubs and eventually became technical director for Desportivo Brasil.
When he left the Fury in September it was being reported he was to join SKC as an assistant coach. But this was before the club had even officially announced the USL team.
The Swope Park Rangers are coming together! Now they just need some players.
