Former Wizards Coaches News

Some quick news on 2 former Wizards coaches. The first is that Bob Gansler, the Wizards coach for all 3 of their trophies (2000 MLS Cup, 2000 Supporter's Shield, 2004 USOC), is up for induction into the US Soccer Hall of Fame. Gansler is on the Builders Ballot. He joins 8 other former Wizards on in their attempts to be elected to the hall of fame (Brian Bliss, Mike Burns, Mark Chung, Frank Klopas, Roy Lassiter, Preki, Mike Sorber, and Peter Vermes).

The other news, is that former Wizards coach, Brian Bliss has been named the Columbus Crew's Technical Director. That makes 3 former Wizards players that are team's technical directors. Peter Vermes in Kansas City and Chris Henderson in Seattle are the other two. Congratulations to Bliss on the new position.
