Red Bulls name Robin Fraser assistant coach

The New York Red Bulls have named former Chivas USA coach Robin

Fraser an assistant coach.

Red Bulls sporting director Andy Roxburgh announced the hiring

Wednesday, saying the former MLS player will be a key resource for

Mike Petke in his first season as head coach.

Fraser coached Chivas USA for the past two seasons. He had

worked as an assistant at Real Salt Lake, helping the franchise win

the MLS Cup in 2009.

A two-time MLS Defender of the Year in 1999 and 2004, and a

five-time MLS All-Star, Fraser played in 260 games with the Los

Angeles Galaxy (1996-2000), Colorado Rapids (2001-03) and Columbus

Crew (2004-05).

The Red Bulls, in training camp in Florida now, will open the

season March 3 vs. Portland.
