Real Salt Lake announced today the names of three new assistant coaches under Jeff Cassar: Paul Dalglish, Daryl Shore, and Craig Waibel. They are joined by Andy Williams, who was promoted from his scouting position to an assistant coach.

Dalglish and Shore both bring experience as head coach to the table; Dalglish headed FC Tampa Bay and Austin Azktex, while Shore most recently coached Ft. Lauderdale Strikers in NASL.

Daglish and Waibel both have MLS experience, with the two overlapping at Houston Dynamo in 2006 and 2007. Waibel had an MLS-centric career but the Portland-born former right back's first two clubs were Spokane Shadow and Seattle Sounders. His first MLS club was Colorado Rapids, whom he joined on loan in 2000.

Scottish-born former forward Dalglish is the son of English mainstay Kenny Dalglish, and a year of his youth career was spent at Liverpool, and his career was largely spent in the United Kingdom, primarily at English clubs.

In a press release, Cassar said having experienced staff was important.

"Having such an experienced staff on board will help me in my first year as a head coach, and the unique characteristics that each of them bring to the table will help the team contend for another MLS Cup," Cassar said. "Their backgrounds will also allow RSL to continue our unique position-specific coaching model."

According to the release, Shore will work primarily with goalkeepers, Waibel with defenders, Williams with midfielders, and Dalglish with forwards.
