Dallas: Assistant coach Oscar Pareja has left FCD to join Wilmer Cabrera as an assistant with the U17 US national team. Pareja has been with Dallas for nearly a decade as a player and coach and will be sorely missed in Texas.
New York: The Red Bulls continue to try to break up other teams' relationships, this time making a play for Preki to join the Red Bulls as their replacement for Bruce Arena.
