Once again, Columbus Crew SC assistant coach Josh Wolff is linked with an Major League Soccer head coaching vacancy. According to the Denver Post, Wolff is one of at least four potential candidates for the vacant head coaching position with the Colorado Rapids.
Colorado is currently lead by interim manager Steve Cooke, who was appointed after the firing of Pablo Mastroeni in mid August.
This is not the first time Wolff has been linked with a head coaching position. The Columbus assistant was a candidate for the vacant Real Salt Lake position before the club eventually settled on Mike Petke. According to Grant Wahl, Atlanta United was interested in Wolff as the club’s first manager, though it’s unclear how serious that interest was.
Sam Stejskal of MLSsoccer.com reported Wednesday night that “the quartet do not represent the club’s top four candidates.”
What is clear is that Wolff has a serious desire to be the head caoch for an MLS team. The question is not if, but when Wolff will get the opportunity to take charge of his own club.
