Sounders retain Sigi Schmid: 'Accomplishments speak for themselves'

Staff writerNovember 14, 2013 

Here is the statement from Sounders majority owner Joe Roth regarding the decision to bring back Sigi Schmid for a sixth season as head coach:

“Adrian Hanauer and I met to review all team aspects of the organization. After a thorough evaluation, there is no question that Sigi Schmid is the right man to lead our club. While we are not happy with the way we finished, Sigi’s resume and accomplishments speak for themselves. We have been to the playoffs five-straight years, one of just three teams to have done that. Once you make the tournament you give yourself a chance to win the MLS Cup. Sigi has won two MLS Cups and it won’t be long before he does it here in Seattle. We continue to strive for excellence and we will do everything we can and give him all the resources possible to make that a reality.”
