It looks like it may not take long for Jimmy Nielsen to find his first post playing career job. As I mentioned earlier tonight, Nielsen is apparently a candidate to become the first head coach for USL-Pro side, Oklahoma City Energy. Combine that with the talk that OKC will become an affiliate for KC, and Nielsen could still play a role for KC.
In other former KC player becoming a coach news, Frank Klopas was named the head coach for the Montreal Impact. He'll become the club's third coach in their three seasons since becoming an MLS team. And the other big news this week, was the move by Eddie Johnson from Seattle to DC United for allocation money. Here's the rest of this week's update.
