Eric Wynalda to step away from coach’s role with NASL’s Atlanta Silverbacks

Originally posted on ProSoccerTalk:

It appears as if our favorite U.S. Soccer dissident has one fewer job. Eric Wynalda, one of the United States’ greatest players who has drawn more attention as Jurgen Klinsmann’s rhetorical counterpoint, will no longer coach the NASL’s Atlanta Silverbacks. The team’s technical director, whose role included head coaching responsibilities, will relinquish the latter role after this weekend’s visit from FC Edmonton.

According to the Silverbacks’ statement, plans to have Wynalda serve in the dual capacity have changed amid new demands with FOX Sports, his primary employer. Serving as Gus Johnson’s color man on FOX’s primary soccer broadcast team meant Wynalda, who lives in Los Angeles, is now managing more than a cross-country commute.

“When we sat down at the beginning of the season, we came up with a plan and a schedule that would have worked, but my role with FOX changed dramatically and that was an unforeseen change,” Wynalda explained…

Quad City Eagles Repeat As NPSL Central Champs

qceagles

In the NPSL Midwest, regular season play came to a close with defending Central Conference winner Quad City Eagles repeating their success of 2013. Needing a draw or win to clinch the title, Quad City cruised to a 5-0 victory over Eau Claire Aris FC and won back-to-back Central championships. The Eagles now move on to Midwest Region playoffs.

Newcomer Minnesota United FC Reserves made things interesting, defeating host Madison 56ers SC 3-0 a night prior. That had MNUFCR tied in points with Quad City, whom they defeated 3-0 on July 5. An early season loss at FC Bordo St. Louis and earning just one point against Twin Cities Derby opponent Minnesota TwinStars FC were too much for United FC Reserves in their chase of the conference title.

With just one loss on their regular season, Quad City Eagles (7-2-1) have the top winning percentage of all Midwest clubs and should be contenders in the region tournament.

Quarterfinals Set For U.S. Open Cup

With a CONCACAF Champions League spot on the line, the U.S. Open Cup has some extra meaning. Two clubs from NASL still dream of raising the USOC trophy and competing in the top club competition in the region. Carolina RailHawks have tournament victories over Charlotte Eagles (USL PRO), Chivas USA (MLS) and LA Galaxy (MLS) to earn their spot in the quarterfinals. They will host yet another MLS club next, FC Dallas on July 8.

The Atlanta Silverbacks made history in the fifth round, winning on the road and finishing the final half-hour with just eight players on the pitch. Holding a 2-0 lead on host Colorado Rapids, an incident in the 62′ involving several players from both sides resulted in four players shown red cards. Silverbacks coaches Eric Wynalda and Ricardo Montoya were ejected as well leaving Atlanta without a bench coach. Colorado were awarded a PK in the 75′, but the Silverbacks held on to win 2-1.
