Here's another week of former SKC Wizards updates. First, there were plenty of former SKC Wizards in Omaha late last week when the US 94 World Cup team played an exhibition against the Omaha Vipers. Alexi Lalas, Preki, Roy Lassiter, and Diego Gutierrez all played for the US team, Tony Meola was supposed to play but couldn't make it due to travel. Chris Brunt played for the Vipers. Preki and Gutierrez both had a goal and an assist, Lassiter had a goal, and Brunt picked up an assist as the Vipers won. In other former player news, it looks like Yura Movsisyan is on his way out of Denmark and potentially on his way Russia. Not sure how much of an upward movement that is for Movsisyan, but that could be an interesting move for Movsisyan.
In former coach and front office news, former GM, Curt Johnson has been named the GM of the Carolina Railhawks of the NASL, but since the league did not get sanctioning from US Soccer yet. Also, former coach Curt Onalfo has been named the new assistant coach for the LA Galaxy and will run the reserve team. He will take over the position vacated by Cobi Jones. Here's the rest of this week's former SKC Wizards update.
