The Chicago Fire Soccer Club announced Friday that Clint Mathis has joined the club as an assistant coach.
A former U.S. International and World Cup veteran whose professional career spanned three countries, Mathis joins the Fire after recently serving as the LA Galaxy Camps and Clinics Supervisor.
"Clint always played with an edge and was one of the most dynamic strikers to play in MLS," said Chicago Fire Head Coach and Director of Soccer Frank Yallop. "He has a wealth of knowledge from his playing career, both domestically and abroad, and at his most recent position with the Galaxy he gained invaluable experience developing young talent. He will be a great asset to our coaching staff, especially from an offensive perspective."
Mathis is the latest addition and only former offensive player to join Frank Yallop's technical staff which currently includes technical director Brian Bliss, assistant coach C.J. Brown and goalkeeper coach Aron Hyde.
"I have tremendous respect for Frank and the team he's assembling in Chicago," said Mathis. "I'm thankful for the opportunity to return to MLS with such a respected organization."
