On the Crew's appointment of Gregg Berhalter as Head Coach and Sporting Director:
“Gregg was a very intelligent player. When you spoke with him, you got the sense that he would be the type of player who could transition into coaching and have the potential to be successful. He is disciplined and brings a tremendous amount of experience from his career both abroad and in MLS.
We are pleased for Gregg that he is getting this opportunity in Columbus.”
