After leaving the Fire on Oct. 30, Mather graduate Frank Klopas was hired Wednesday as head coach and director of player personnel of the Montreal Impact, signing a three-year contract. Klopas, 47, is replacing Marco Schallibaum, who led the Impact to a 14-13-7 record this year and a first-round playoff exit.
In parts of three seasons with the Fire, Klopas went 39-29-23 and coached them to the final of the 2011 U.S. Open Cup, and the MLS playoffs in 2012. This year, Klopas led the Fire to the same 14-13-7 record as Montreal, but they missed the postseason because of goal differential.
