While it remains unclear for just how long he will carry the title, it appears Mauro Biello has been tabbed to replace Jesse Marsch as head coach of the Montreal Impact.
Just a day after announcing publicly that the team’s head coaching duties would be shared by the Impact’s entire coaching staff, the Impact have settled on Biello to lead the team, sources told SBI on Sunday. Montreal players were informed of the decision over the weekend, meaning Biello will be in charge during the team’s upcoming tour of Italy.
A standout player for the Impact when the team was part of the A-League (Now the USL First Division), Biello has served as an assistant coach with the club since November of 2009.
Assistant coaches Denis Hamlett and Mike Sorber are still with the team.
What do you think of this development? See Biello eventually sticking as the head coach? Think he can do the job? Who would you like to see take over as Impact head coach?
