Jesse Marsch is off to RB Leipzig, as he was announced yesterday as their next coach, replacing Julian Nagelsmann. On Episode 49, we do a quick reaction to Marsch’s move from Salzburg to Leipzig and how his path through the Red Bull system has put him in the position he seeked when he left the New York Red Bulls: a head coaching job with a big time club in Europe.
We also dip into the pathway for American coaches to run clubs in Europe. Currently, there are a few, but while the focus has been on getting players to Europe, pathways need to be discovered that give more American coaches the opportunity to do the same. Still, there will be 2 American coaches in the Bundesliga next season, and hopefully more opportunities will emerge at clubs in some of the major European leagues where Americans will get a chance to succeed.
