Josh Wolff leaves D.C. United to take an assistant's role with the Columbus Crew

Former D.C. United striker Josh Wolff is leaving his post as an assistant to Ben Olsen to go to Columbus with new coach Gregg Berhalter.

D.C. United announced today that assistant coach Josh Wolff is leaving the team to go to the Columbus Crew, where he will serve as an assistant to new head coach Gregg Berhalter. Wolff retired as a player after the 2012 season and was moved directly into a full-time coaching role after serving as a player-coach. He primarily worked with D.C. United's attacking players, as you might expect and as you can tell from interviews with the players. The team also announced that they have already begun interviewing candidates to replace Wolff.

There are two ways in which I would want a replacement to be found. The first would be go to out and get a experienced assistant, perhaps a former head coach in Major League Soccer, who can provide a depth of experience that no one else on the staff currently has. However, another part of me wants the team to call up Jaime Moreno, who is well known as wanting to move into the professional coaching ranks, and promote him from coach of the U-23 team to an assistant coach on the senior team.

Do you all have any wish list options for assistant coach?
