The Los Angeles Galaxy franchise is slowly beginning their rebuild.
After losing head coach Bruce Arena -- who moved on to coach the USMNT in the 2018 World Cup Qualifiers -- and two Designated Players like Steven Gerrard and Robbie Keane, the franchise needs to turn things around if they want to remain competitive.
And their first move was to announce Pete Vagenas as their new general manager.
Vagenas' first task will be to find a new coach to replace Arena.
The @LAGalaxy today will announce that Peter Vagenas has been promoted to G.M. First order of business, hire a new coach.— Alexi Lalas (@AlexiLalas) November 28, 2016
It’s been rumored that the person in the best position to get the head coaching job is LA Galaxy assistant coach and LA Galaxy II head coach, Curt Onalfo. It will be up to Chris Klein and Vagenas to determine if another internal promotion is warranted or if the team is better off going outside the club.
LA Galaxy's Klein confirms Onalfo as one of the candidates... but more are coming. Shortly.— Chandrima Chatterjee (@chandrimatweets) November 28, 2016
It's certainly time for the franchise to make big decisions.
