Former Toronto FC coach Greg Vanney is taking over the Los Angeles Galaxy.
The 46-year-old Vanney left Toronto on Dec. 1, saying he needed a new challenge after more than six successful years at TFC. He will get one in Los Angeles, which finished 10th in the Western Conference this season at 6-12-4.
Vanney started his playing career with the Galaxy, who took him 17th overall in the 1996 MLS draft.
He ranks seventh on the club list in player appearances with 193, helping the team to the Supporters’ Shield (1998), CONCACAF Champions’ Cup (2000) and U.S. Open Cup (2001).
