FRISCO, Texas (Thursday, January 5, 2012) – FC Dallas has named Marco Ferruzzi as the head coach of FC Dallas Reserves, the club announced today.
Ferruzzi made 120 appearances in a Richmond Kickers uniform over four seasons (1999-2002), notching 18 goals and eight assists in nearly 10,000 minutes played.
“We are very happy to have Marco as our Reserve coach for the coming season,” said FC Dallas head coach Schellas Hyndman. “He has worked very hard and continues to grow to become an outstanding coach in MLS. He has earned the opportunity to be the FC Dallas Reserve coach through his hard work and his knowledge of the FC Dallas Way.”
Entering his eighth season with the club, Ferruzzi will continue to serve as an assistant to Hyndman while coaching the Reserves. The 40-year-old compiled a 2-2-1 record as FC Dallas’ interim head coach prior to the hiring of Hyndman during the 2008 season. A former professional, Ferruzzi played 19 games in MLS with the Tampa Bay Mutiny during the 1997 season.
Ferruzzi holds a USSF “A” coaching license and played his collegiate soccer at the University of North Carolina from 1989 to 1992.
