The Los Angeles Galaxy will introduce Bruce Arena as the team’s new head coach at a press conference scheduled for 2pm ET today.

Arena and assistant coach Dave Sarachan will take over for former Galaxy head coach Ruud Gullit, who resigned a week ago, and their first game at the Galaxy helm will be Thursday against the Chicago Fire. Cobi Jones is expected to remain on the Galaxy coaching staff.

For those of you who missed the story on Friday, Arena reached an agreement to become the Galaxy’s head coach on Friday.

Here is my Sunday column on ESPN.com on Arena taking over the Galaxy.

Now that Arena is set to take over, what do you think about his chances of fixing the mess made by Alexi Lalas and Ruud Gullit? Is Arena the right man for the job or will he make things worse?
