Steve Morrow is new FC Dallas coach

Steve Morrow can remove the ‘interim’ from his title as FC Dallas president and general manager Michael Hitchcock give him the big nod this afternoon.

Morrow played for Dallas in 2002 and 03 before retiring due to a neck injury. He became an assistant coach in 2004, but had to resign soon after due to personal issues. However, just a few months later he was back working under Colin Clarke.

When Clarke was fired last month, Morrow became interim boss. His hiring as the full time boss seems to signal that Dallas is not looking for a major change from the Clarke years. Instead, it would appear that they like their general direction; they just seem to need a little different guidance.

Morrow takes over a team coming off their best regular season ever, yet it is still one that falls to pieces late in the year. If he is to have success, he will need to do something about their poor defense.
