Impact's Schallibaum Makes Coaching Staff Moves

Marco Schallibaum, new head coach of Major League Soccer's Montreal Impact, announced Tuesday his coaching staff moves for the 2013 season, whose schedule will be unveiled at noon Eastern time Wednesday.

Former player-turned-assistant-coach Mauro Biello and fitness coach Paulo Pacione have been retained, with youth academy director Philippe Eullaffroy being given the added duties of assistant coach, and academy goalkeeper coach Youssef Dahha returns to the first team coaching staff.

Eullaffroy has been with the team since 2009 and has been head coach of their U-21 reserve team in the Canadian Soccer League.

The team finished with the second-best record in the CSL in 2012 at 14-3-5 and lost, 1-0, to Toronto Croatia in the league's championship game.

Dahha served with the first team beginning in 2004, when they were in the USL First Division. He was on the team's 2004, 2005 and 2006 USL-1 Commissioner's Cup teams for their outstanding regular season records and won titles in 2004 and 2009.
