He was also the first head coach for Kansas City’s first national women’s soccer league team, FC Kansas City. He led them to back-to-back league championships in 2014 and 2015.

Andonovski said he had offers from other teams, but joining the KC current is where he wanted to be.

“I’m excited and humbled by this opportunity to be part of an organization like this and I just can’t wait to get on the field and start being the team that will make the city proud.”

Andonovski resigned as U.S. women’s national team head coach in August after being criticized for the team’s underperformance this year.

More information about the change of coaching will be released at 10 a.m. Monday.
