Andy Williams, RSL original, promoted to coaching position

George Frey

Andy Williams will be one of newly named Real Salt Lake head coach Jeff Cassar's assistant coaches, with the void left by the departures of Jason Kreis, CJ Brown and Miles Joseph starting to be filled.

Williams was the second player to join Real Salt Lake, playing from 2005 through 2011. He retired at the end of the 2011 season, taking up a scouting position at the club.

Through much of the 2013 season, Williams has been involved in training sessions in a coaching role, although to what extent was left somewhat vague. This new position for Williams puts him a more prominent position at the club.

It's not immediately known what will become of the club's scouting efforts, which are wholly unlikely to stop.

C.J. Brown, Miles Joseph, and Jeff Cassar have all left assistant coaching positions, with Brown off to Chicago Fire as an assistant coach, Joseph reportedly off to New York City FC alongside Kreis, and Cassar promoted. Chris Kamrani, Salt Lake Tribune reporter on the RSL beat, said Cassar is looking to add three more assistant coaches to the ranks.

In today's press conference officially announcing the promotion of Cassar, RSL owner Dell Loy Hansen lauded the new coach's preparation, saying that he came to the table with "well over 20 names" of assistant coach options.
