Diego Aparicio of Al Dia spoke to SMU coach Schellas Hyndman and Hyndman insists that he has not spoken to FC Dallas about becoming the team’s new head coach or technical director.
"I have a good relationship with the Hunt family, and have for a long time, so for that reason I am always connect with FC Dallas every time they are looking for a head coach," Hyndman told Al Dia. "But I have not met with anybody."
The report contradicts a report from 3rddegree.net, which stated that FC Dallas was set to may Hyndman the club’s head coach and technical director.
What do I think? Coaches deny exactly these types of situations all the time because there is no point admitting contact until a contract is signed. I’m not calling Hyndman a liar but it’s all about wording. Hyndman may not have "met" with anybody, but he could have easily had phone conversations or even negotiated via email. Considering he still has a job at SMU to deal with, it wouldn’t make sense to admit he were pursuing a job until he had it. Either way, I find it hard to believe Hunts Sports Group didn’t make another run at Hyndman. Now, if Hyndman was quoted as saying, "I’m staying at SMU. I’m not going anywhere." I might believe it a little more strongly.
What’s my take on the search? FC Dallas should hire Dave Sarachan, who has the experience and track record in the league to provide some stability to an organization that is in dire need of some. If Sarachan isn’t the pick, then Oscar Pareja should be the pick.
