The Athletic’s Kristian Dyer is reporting that the Union have turned to former Red Bull Salzburg academy director Ernst Tanner to replace Stewart just a week after the latter officially left his role with the club to join the USMNT.
Tanner was in charge of developing Salzburg’s youth team, and has garnered a lot of attention throughout Europe by helping build a strong culture in Austria with the club.
He has also had experience in Germany with Hoffenheim and 1860 Munich, where he was in charge of youth development.Follow @MattReedFutbol
