Former Dallas Burn standout Oscar Pareja and former Chicago Fire head coach Dave Sarachan are set to interview for the FC Dallas head coaching job, Tobias Lopez at the Ft. Worth Star-Telegram reported on Friday.
A third unidentified candidate is also set to interview for the position vacated when Steve Morrow was fired last week.
What’s my take. I think Pareja is an excellent candidate. Someone who understands the league, can relate to the latino players and has the reputation to earn instant respect from the players.
I also think Sarachan is a good candidate. I know his time before he was fired by Chicago didn’t go well but it is easily forgotten that he is responsible for building essentially the entire Chicago Fire team that is the best team in MLS right now. With the exception of Cuauhtemoc Blanco (which Sarachan was actually head coach when he signed to join Chicago) and Wilman Conde are key players who weren’t around for Sarachan’s tenure. Sarachan is a player’s coach who definitely knows the game and is as sharp as they come.
