Out in La La Land, out in the Land of the The Los Angeles Galaxy, the golden coast of Southern California, Major League Soccer’s most storied club is going through some massive changes to their personnel. Massive, massive changes. The domino effect is in play. First, Steven Gerrard stepped away from the Galaxy. Next, it was Robbie Keane, a longtime captain of the club, to take his leave. And now, Dave Sarachan, a longtime Associate Head Coach, is the next to depart the organization.

“I am proud of the role I have played in delivering three MLS Cup Championships to Los Angeles and I’m thankful for the relationships I’ve developed over the course of my time here,” said Sarachan. “Leaving a group of players of such quality and class is not easy but, professionally, I am ready for a new challenge.”

“Dave has been an outstanding member of this organization for nearly a decade,” said Arena of Sarachan’s resignation. “His passion, dedication, and experience have been incredibly valuable to players, coaches, and staff. I want to thank Dave for his hard work and wish him the best of luck. He will be missed immensely.”

Sarachan spent eight seasons with the Galaxy, helping LA win three MLS Cups (2011, 2012, 2014) and two MLS Supporters’ Shields (2010, 2011). Ultimately, two straight seasons without any silverware hurts bad. It has caused a massive shakeup to the coaching staff and player list and now the possibility of Arena him being among the next to leave has to be considered. Do not surprised if more departures take place. The door is now wide open for a fresh face to take the reins and fill some very big shoes. At least we will always remember…his fear of wolves. Thanks Dave.
