Amos Magee joins D.C. United as U-23 head coach and first team assistant coach

USA TODAY Sports

D.C. United announced today that Amos Magee, formerly of the Portland Timbers, has joined the team as an assistant and as U-23 head coach.

D.C. United is on a tear of announcing new assistant coaches: first, it was Enzo Concina, and now they have announced that Amos Magee has joined the club as an assistant coach for the first team and as the head coach of the U-23 team. Magee most recently filled those same two roles for the Portland Timbers since they joined MLS, and snagging an assistant coach from them is as good a place as any from which to recruit. Magee was rumored to have left the Timbers months ago, but the lag in time between that move and today's announcement led some to think he was headed for a job elsewhere in town.

Magee spent his entire playing career with the Minnesota Thunder, scoring 64 goals over 11 seasons as a striker. He also coached the team, which played in USL-1, for two seasons before jumping to the then USL Portland Timbers in 2009 and coming with them to MLS in 2011. Magee also coached the US team to a gold medal in the 2007 Pan American Maccabiah Games. Magee seems to have a wealth of coaching experience and, given his history as a striker, seems to be in place to help groom United's young attackers.

His appointment gives United five coaches on the gameday bench, which is one more than they have had over the past few seasons: Joining Olsen are Magee, Concina, Chad Ashton, and Preston Burpo. This also seems to serve as confirmation that Jaime Moreno, club legend and former U-23 coach, is no longer with the team, at least not in a coaching role.
