DC United needs a coach to reorganize the team. After Ben Olsen spent more than 10 years at the helm, DC United needs a winning coach who will lead him to glory once and for all. For that, the owners of DC United are thinking very carefully about whom is the best option to replace Olsen.
The week that Olsen was fired, Jill Ellis had sounded like the perfect replacement for that position, but then some new names appeared. The former USWNT coach looks forward to being the first coach in MLS history. He would be a great fit for the position and would set a precedent in MLS history.
In addition to Ellis, the current interim coach has a chance to continue as the official coach. The good results after Olsen left, give Chad Ashton a chance to continue as coach. Although it is difficult, the opportunities are there. Another coach who could come to DC United is Ezra Hendrickson, the current assistant coach of the Colombus Crew.
Last on the list is former New York Red Bulls coach Chris Armas. Any of these 4 coaches could become the new coach of DC United but apparently, Jill Ellis would have a slight advantage over the rest. The next few days will be very important for the future of DC United as they must decide who will be the new coach.
