FC Dallas is set to name SMU head coach Schellas Hyndman as its new head coach and will announce the signing later this week, sources told SBI on Tuesday. The decision comes two weeks after FC Dallas fired former coach Steve Morrow.
No word on whether Hyndman will also be given the position of technical director, as Buzz Carrick at 3rd Degree reported two weeks ago.
Here is my take on Hyndman’s hire. My opinion hasn’t changed. I think it’s a terrible decision. There were some very good candidates out there, including Dave Sarachan and Oscar Pareja, but it seems as if the decision was ultimately made by FC Dallas owner Clark Hunt, who played for Hyndman at SMU.
What do you think of FC Dallas hiring Hyndman? Great move? Dumb move? Share your thoughts below.
