As one former Chivas USA player, Ezra Hendrickson, has moved from Seattle Sounders assistant coach to head coach of the Sounders' new USL PRO club, another former Chivas USA player, beloved scorer Ante Razov, has been appointed as Hendrickson's replacement as Sigi Schmid's assistant coach, the club announced on Thursday.

Razov joins Seattle after working as a coach in the LA Galaxy's academy the past few years. The Southern California native did begin his pro career with the Galaxy, long before CUSA even existed, but in case you weren't aware of why he didn't join Chivas' staff, he was sued (in addition to the club and the league) by the Goats' former trainer for a "vicious attack" back in 2009. So it's safe to say that things were a bit rocky between the parties following that incident.

He joins Schmid in Seattle, who he played under at UCLA and briefly at Columbus Crew. Seattle are, of course, coming off a double-winning season, as they won the U.S. Open Cup and Supporters' Shield.
