Chivas USA hires Wilmer Cabrera as head coach
The number of coach-less MLS teams is down to one.
Chivas USA hired former U.S. Under-17 and Colorado Rapids assistant coach Wilmer Cabrera as its new manager Thursday, leaving FC Dallas as the only team without a coach in the days leading up to the MLS Combine and SuperDraft. Dallas is reportedly closing in on prying Oscar Pareja away from Colorado to replace Schellas Hyndman, a move that would leave the Rapids without its head coach and top assistant from a 2013 playoff team.
Cabrera steps in for Jose Luis Real, who returned to parent club Chivas Guadalajara. He had stepped in for the ousted Jose Luis Sanchez Sola (aka Chelis), during a tumultuous campaign for the Goats that included a 14-game winless streak and six wins total.
