no decisions on new hires,
1) A GM of a MLS team, similar to a NBA team, is someone like Kevin Pritchard w/ Blazers who is responsible for making player decisions and overseeing team matters. A GM typically is not engaged on the business side. That would be a president or a COO. I will be the president and senior executive of the MLS team. 2) I have made zero decisions related to hiring for MLS. I am fortunate to have a tremendous existing staff who is focused on the ramp up. No additional full-time staffing decisions will be made until everything is finalized. So your piece on Mike Golub, who is indeed a friend, was inaccurate on a couple levels.
