Eskandarian named Cosmos B coach; tryouts begin this March


The New York Cosmos continue to build upon their PDL footprint, handing the coaching reigns to former team assistant Alecko Eskandarian.

“I’m extremely excited about being named the head coach of Cosmos B,” said Eskandarian in a club statement. “The creation of this team represents an important step for the future of our club, and I’m looking forward to implementing the standards and values of the first team down to our NPSL team.”

Eskandarian served as the Youth Technical Director for the Philadelphia Union prior to taking the Cosmos’ assistant position in February of 2013. The rest of his technical staff will be put in place in the coming weeks.

“It’s important that our Cosmos B set-up shares the same vision as the first team,” said Cosmos head coach Giovanni Savarese. “We want the B team players to play with the same style and philosophy. Having Alecko in charge of their development will ensure continuity from team to team and coach to coach.”

The Cosmos join the Carolina Railhawks, Silverbacks and Minnesota United as the lone NASL sides to field developmental squads in NPSL. The Cosmos B team will play in the League’s Northeast Region, North Atlantic Conference, facing off against the likes of the Brooklyn Italians, Greater Lowell United FC, New York Athletic Club and others.

Tryouts for the club begin March 28-29th, and will be sponsored by the Queens Hospital. Aspiring trialists can email to arrange for a tryout. Resumes will be accepted through March 14th. Details about the team’s training facility and home are yet to be revealed.
