“He will be a huge boost for us and will compliment (team president) Darren (Eales) and my skill sets well,” Bocanegra said.
McDonough and Orlando SC agreed to part a week ago, the Orlando Sentinel reported.
While at Orlando, McDonough drafted MLS rookie of the year Cyle Larin and Latino player of the year Darwin Ceren. The Lions were in the playoff hunt until the final season’s final week.
Bocanegra said he will never comment on any speculation regarding potential coaches and players. In the past two weeks, there have been reports citing anonymous sources tying the club to Columbus assistant and Atlanta native Josh Wolff as a potential coach, and Mexico’s Marco Fabian and Spain’s Cesc Fabregas as players.
