Marco Ferruzzi named FC Dallas Reserves head coach


FC Dallas has named Marco Ferruzzi as the head coach of FC Dallas Reserves. The FCD Veteran takes over for newly appointed Rapids head coach Oscar Pareja.

“We are very happy to have Marco as our reserve coach for the coming season,” said FC Dallas head coach Schellas Hyndman. “He has worked very hard and continues to grow to become an outstanding coach in MLS. He has earned the opportunity to be the FC Dallas Reserve coach through his hard work and his knowledge of the FC Dallas way.”

Entering his eighth season with the club, Ferruzzi will continue to serve as an assistant to Hyndman while coaching the reserves. The 40-year-old compiled a 2-2-1 record as FC Dallas’ interim head coach prior to the hiring of Hyndman during the 2008 season. A former professional, Ferruzzi played 19 games in MLS with the Tampa Bay Mutiny during the 1997 season.

Ferruzzi holds a USSF “A” coaching license and played his collegiate soccer at the University of North Carolina from 1989 to 1992.
