FC Cincinnati has at least two candidates to fill its vacant head coaching position, household names on either side of the Atlantic Ocean.

Jaap Stam and Dominic Kinnear are in frame for the position, writes The Athletic’s Paul Tenorio.

Stam’s held three first team managerial posts since his tremendous playing career. The 67-times Netherlands international back played for Manchester United, Lazio, and PSV Eindhoven during a glittering career that saw him win UEFA Defender of the Year for United in 1998/99 and 1999/2000.

In management, Stam oversaw Football League Championship side Reading before taking the reins at Eredivisie sides PEC Zwolle and Feyenoord.

Kinnear began his career in the United States and was capped 54 times during a career mostly spent domestically but also in Mexico and Scotland. His management career saw him win back-to-back MLS Cups with Houston and he’s been an assistant with the Galaxy since San Jose fired him in 2017.

Yoann Damet is currently in his second stint as FCC interim coach, having assisted the club’s first two MLS managers in Alan Koch and Ron Jans.
