Toronto FC hires ex-U.S. coach Gansler as assistant

TORONTO -- Former U.S. national coach Bob Gansler was hired Tuesday as an assistant for Toronto FC, which will become Major League Soccer's 13th club when it debuts in April.

Gansler, the longtime head coach of the Kansas City Wizards, was reunited with Toronto FC manager Mo Johnston.

``I am very excited to be working with Bob again,'' Johnston said. ``He is a big part of why I went into coaching, and to have him here in Toronto is tremendous.''

He was added to the staff with assistants Mike Matkovich and Carmine Issaco.

Gansler coached the U.S. team from 1989-91 and led the Americans to the 1990 World Cup in Italy, the country's first World Cup appearance in 40 years. He was fired in July after 7½ seasons as coach of the Wizards.

Johnston, a former Scotland international, was captain of the Wizards team that won the 2000 MLS title under Gansler.

Toronto FC will debut April 7 against Chivas USA in Carson, Calif.
