Atlanta United tab Glass as interim manager

Stephen Glass will serve as the interim head coach of the Atlanta United, the organization announced Monday.

Glass, who previously was the head coach of the Atlanta United 2 of the United Soccer League, will stay with the MLS club as it looks for a permanent replacement after parting ways with Frank de Boer on Friday.

Atlanta won both of its matches in 2020 before the MLS season was interrupted due to the coronavirus pandemic. The club didn't fare well in the MLS is Back Tournament near Orlando, however, as it failed to score a goal en route to losing all three matches in group play.

Glass began his playing career with 110 appearances at Aberdeen FC before moving to the English Premier League with Newcastle United in 1998-2001. He also competed in the English Championship with Watford before moving back to Scotland and appearing in 86 matches for Hibernian.

"Stephen not only has professional experience as a player at the highest levels of the sport, he is a proven leader and is well respected as a coach by his players and staff," club president Darren Eales said in a statement. "We have great confidence that Stephen will re-energize the team and move the club in the right direction during this transition period."

Glass joined the Atlanta United organization in August 2018 as a coach with the club's U-17 academy. He was promoted to manager of Atlanta United 2 in January 2019.

"I am honored to take over as interim head coach for the Atlanta United first team," Glass said in a statement. "I am committed to continuing the hard work the team has done to establish itself as a top club in MLS, and to meeting the high standard expected of us both on and off the field. I look forward to quickly establishing a structure and rapport with the players as we prepare to return to play in our home market."

Orlando City's Dwyer to miss rest of MLS is Back Tournament

Orlando City SC striker Dom Dwyer will miss the remainder of the team's participation in the MLS is Back Tournament after he exited the bubble to obtain an MRI on his left knee.

Per Orlando City, Dwyer has ventured home and will not return in time with respect to the injury and quarantine.

Dwyer, who has missed the team's last two matches, last participated in Orlando City's 3-1 win over New York City FC on July 14.

The 29-year-old has notched an assist in two matches this season for Orlando City (2-1-2, 8 points), who posted a 1-0 win over the Montreal Impact on Saturday. The Lions will play against the winner of Monday's match between the Seattle Sounders and Los Angeles FC in the quarterfinals on Friday.

Dwyer has recorded 81 goals and 18 assists in 195 career matches with Sporting Kansas City and Orlando City.
