Soccer: New Real Salt Lake coach Jeff Cassar names assistants
First Published Jan 08 2014 09:53 pm • Last Updated Mar 24 2014 11:32 pm

Three weeks after being named head coach of Real Salt Lake upon the departure of Jason Kreis to New York City FC, the former RSL assistant coach now officially has assistants of his own.

The club announced Wednesday afternoon the hiring of franchise staple Andy Williams, along with Daryl Shore, Paul Dalglish and Craig Waibel as coaches on Jeff Cassar’s staff.

"I’m very excited for Andy, Daryl, Paul and Craig to join me as assistants," Cassar said in a release from the club. "Having such an experienced staff on board will help me in my first year as a head coach, and the unique characteristics that each of them bring to the table will help the team contend for another MLS Cup."

A known commodity to the franchise since its inception in 2005, Williams, who served as RSL’s head scout the last two seasons, will coach the midfielders and relinquish full-time scouting duties.

Ex-German player comes out as gay

A former World Cup player from Germany came out as gay Wednesday, rebuking the Russian anti-gay law that threatens to tarnish next month’s Sochi Olympics and challenging the longstanding stigma against homosexuality in soccer.

With his announcement, Thomas Hitzlsperger became the biggest name in soccer to declare he is gay. He said he wants to help break down the prejudice against homosexuality that has long permeated the macho, testosterone-fueled culture of the world’s most popular sport.
