Two and a half weeks on from the announcement, we take a look around the league at what they're saying about Tab Ramos' hiring:
“Tab has paid his dues and has gone about it in a very professional matter. The most successful U-20 National Team Head Coach, he was also an assistant coach for five years under Juergen Klinsmann. I’m so happy that the Houston Dynamo have seen what we all saw in Tab years good as a coach and as a person. I was blessed to be invited into a few U-20 camps and have seen his work ethic and the incredible knowledge he has of players in the United States and American players in Europe, it’s going to be beneficial to the Houston Dynamo.”
-Marcelo Balboa, Univision and Colorado Rapids TV Analyst
“This is a wonderful and deserved opportunity for Tab. I’ve witnessed firsthand his acumen for developing talent during our time together in the U.S. Soccer program, and now look forward to coaching against him in MLS. Few people in our game know the American soccer landscape as well as Tab, and I know he has the qualities necessary to be a successful manager in this league. I wish him all the best in Houston.”
–Bruce Arena, New England Revolution Sporting Director and Head Coach.
“Tab was one of my favorite players to watch growing up and he has been in the game on every level for a very long time. I am excited for him to have the opportunity to get the Dynamo back to where we all expect the team to be.”
–Brian Ching, Houston Dynamo Legend
