Wizards to announce new head coach Tuesday

Update: Peter Vermes will be officially named tomorrow.

The Kansas City Wizards are expected to announce their new head coach on Tuesday. I think they will likely make Peter Vermes the Head Coach, removing the interim from his title. This is speculation because nobody will say anything other than the announcement will be tomorrow.

Head Coach Peter Vermes?

There has been a lot of speculation about possible coaches, including former Wizard and current (at least until officially released) Chivas coach Preki. He is rumored to be leaving Chivas now that the season has ended. Even though his teams have performed well he and upper management have not seemed to get along. Maybe he could come to Kansas City as an assistant until another job opened up.

Here is Preki talking to Coach Zavagnin at the MLS draft. Former Kansas City head coach Curt Onalfo is in the foreground. Would have been the perfect shot if Preki had replace Onalfo

Check back tomorrow for the more news.


  1. I'm a member of the Preki lobby, although Vermes did start to turn things around near the end of last season

  2. Anyone stop and think that Preki was a better player than coach...just sayin'

  3. Preki made the playoffs all three seasons as head coach. No he didn't ever advance past the first round but that's not bad for his first stint as head coach.
