A day after the launch of North Texas SC, the news cycle for FC Dallas fans shifts back to their head coaching search. On Friday evening, MLSSoccer.com’s Charlie Boehm has reported that United States U-20 national team head coach Tab Ramos is out of the running.

But a new candidate has emerged as sources tell Big D Soccer that long-time Columbus Crew assistant coach and former US Men’s National Team forward Josh Wolff has recently interviewed for the vacant position.

Wolff played in MLS from 1998 through 2012 when he retired with D.C. United and became an assistant there. In 2013 he joined Columbus as an assistant with the Crew and has been with them ever since.

Recently Wolff was a guest assistant coach for the USMNT under Dave Sarachan. Many will remember his playing time with the USMNT as he scored the first goal in the 2001 2-0 win over Mexico in World Cup qualifying.

What do you make of this news? Would you like to see FC Dallas go outside of the box (so-to-speak from Luchi Gonzalez or Marco Ferruzzi)?
