The Whitecaps have now acquired a new head coach, after the firing of their previous coach, Carl Robinson last season. 41 year old, Marc De Santos joins the team from Los Angeles FC, where he was an assistant coach under Bob Bradley.
De Santos holds many accolades, including being a two time winner of the North American Soccer League Coach of the Year. He also made three consecutive appearances in the league championship, winning the 2017 Soccer Bowl Championship with the San Francisco Deltas.
We are excited to welcome Marc Dos Santos to our club. It’s not often that you find a coach who seeks out the unique learning opportunities and challenges that Marc has accumulated around the world. We believe having Marc now in place as head coach, combined with the additional resources we are putting into our scouting and recruitment department, will set up the club for consistent success.
Marc De Santos has agreed to a 3 year contract through 2021.
