Comings and Goings?
It has been a quiet week heading into Saturday’s game versus Salt Lake. The Crew announced that midfielder Brian Plotkin has been signed to a developmental contract. With Rogers, Ekpo, Carroll, Gaven, Miglioranzi, and Evans vying for four spots in the midfield, you won’t see him on the field anytime soon other than the occasional reserve match.
On the goings front, Bob Hunter lobbed the rumor that Sigi Schmid may be a fit for the Seattle coaching job. Schmid is under contract until the end of the year and has lead the team towards the playoffs in his third year with the Crew. I have been impressed with how Coach Schmid has built the team. He has added talent and veteran leadership and. Schmid has built a strong coaching staff and has a seemingly good relationship with GM Mark McCullers. This is his team and I would think he would stick around to finish the job he started.
