Jay Heaps will have additional help in 2017, as former New England Revolution defender Carlos Llamosa as rejoined the club as an assistant coach and scout.
“Carlos was an excellent player and an even better teammate, and we are thrilled to add his passion and energy to our team,” Heaps said in a team press release.
Llamosa, 47, spent ten years playing in the league, including four seasons with D.C. United during which he helped the club win three MLS Cups. After a one-year stay with the Miami Fusion, Llamosa linked up with the Revs in 2002, playing a significant role in the team’s MLS Cup run. Llamosa’s final two seasons were spent with Chivas USA as he called it a career in 2007.
Llamosa rejoined the Goats in 2010 as an assistant coach. He would later serve as an assistant with the New York Cosmos from 2013 to 2016.
It’s worth noting that Llamosa’s role includes scouting responsibilities. Expanding the coaching staff should allow for more scouting trips during the season.
