NASL Podcast Episode #29 – Interview with Fort Lauderdale Strikers Head Coach Daryl Shore
Welcome to episode #29 of the IMSoccer News North American Soccer League Podcast.
In past weeks, Gerry Wittmann , Jay (Yankiboy) Long, and yours truly, Brian Quarstad, have been interviewing all 8 of the NASL head coaches.
So far we’ve interviewed Carolina RailHawks coach Colin Clarke, Tampa Bay Rowdies’ Ricky Hill, Atlanta Silverbacks’ Alex Pineda Chacón, FC Edmonton’s Harry Sinkgraven, San Antonio Scorpions’ Tim Hankinson and the Puerto Rico Islanders coach Adrian Whitbread.
This week’s guest is Fort Lauderdale Strikers head coach, Daryl Shore.
Shore took over as the head coach of Miami FC in July of 2010 after playing and coaching in the old A-League and USISL. He also spent 10 years as an assistant coach of the Chicago Fire when the MLS team were runners-up for the MLS Cup in 2000 and 2003 and won the U.S. Open Cup in 2000, 2003 and 2006. The Fire also made it to the SuperLiga Final in 2009 and won the MLS Supporters’ Shield in 2003.
In this podcast Shore reveals how he was working without a contract until just a few weeks before the start of the NASL season and how budget cuts by Traffic have created a situation where the Strikers coach has had to rebuild his 2012 roster. Shore’s Strikers are currently tied for 2nd place and that new roster also includes Andy Herron, who already has three goals for his club in as many games. Shore talks about the team’s attack and shares with us about his current goalkeeper situation.
Jay and Gerry and I also take a few minutes to run down this past week’s games.
Please join Jay, Gerry and me in this latest episode of the IMSoccer News NASL Podcast.
