COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Robert Warzycha is the new coach of the MLS champion Columbus Crew.
Warzycha was an assistant with the Crew the past six seasons. The 45-year-old takes over for Sigi Schmid, who led Columbus to the championship last month. Schmid was recently hired as coach of the expansion Seattle Sounders FC.
Crew general manager Mark McCullers said Monday other candidates were considered, but none had Warzycha's soccer expertise, experience or potential.
