Marc Dos San­tos has been named the new coach of the Vancouver White­caps.

The club an­nounced Wed­nes­day that the Mon­treal na­tive has been hired as the team’s new head coach. Dos San­tos spent the past sea­son as an as­sis­tant coach for ex­pan­sion Los An­ge­les FC, who were knocked out of the Ma­jor League Soc­cer play­offs by Real Salt Lake last week.

He pre­vi­ously worked with the San Fran­cisco Deltas of the North Amer­i­can Soc­cer League, where he earned man­ager of the year hon­ours in 2017.

Dos San­tos also guided the Ottawa Fury to the NASL fi­nal in 2015, his se­cond and fi­nal year with the squad.

The White­caps fired coach Carl Robin­son, as­sis­tant coach Mar­tyn Pert and goal­keeper coach Ste­wart Kerr on Sept. 25 with just five games left in the sea­son. White­caps FC Academy’s Craig Dal­rym­ple stepped in as coach.
