…and according to this report in the Columbus Dispatch, the current Crew head coach plans to explore his options.
Interesting piece about the Crew’s possible losses, be they a player in the expansion draft tomorrow and their head coach, Sigi Schmid, to Sounders FC, or one or the other. It appears Columbus, the 2008 MLS champion, will lose a player to Sounders FC.
Here’s a key passage in the article to ponder:
The Crew has not given Schmid permission to talk to other teams, and one league source said the Crew filed tampering charges against Seattle. Schmid said he has had no contact with the Sounders, although one league source said Seattle was prepared to offer Schmid a guaranteed four-year contract worth about $2 million, a yearly salary more than twice what he was paid this season.
