“Robin Fraser is a class act. I think he’ll be an outstanding addition to our management team,” said Sporting Director Andy Roxburgh. “First, he has the experience of MLS as a player and then as a winning assistant coach. He also had the opportunity on the front line as a head coach. He will bring an enormous amount of enthusiasm, knowledge and coaching acumen to our club.”
“Andy and I have consulted extensively over the past weeks about additions to the staff before I was named head coach and believe Robin would be a great member of our team. I have known and respected Robin for many years and am excited that he decided to join the club,” said Red Bulls head coach Mike Petke. “Robin’s tremendous success as a player in MLS has carried over to his coaching career. We believe that he will be a huge resource for me, our staff and our players as we head into this season.”
The announcement follows Tuesday’s report by SBI linking the Jamaican MLS veteran to the club.
