HARRISON, N.J. (AP) – Former English national team goalkeeper Chris Woods has become a U.S. coach under new coach Jurgen Klinsmann.
Woods was at the U.S. team training session Monday, ahead of an exhibition game against Ecuador. Woods has been Everton's goalkeeper coach for 13 years, and Klinsmann says Everton manager David Moyes had given permission for Woods to take the U.S. job while continuing his role with the Toffees.
Tim Howard is the No. 1 goalkeeper for Everton and the U.S. national team.
The 51-year-old Woods had 43 appearances for England from 1985-93, making his debut and his final appearance against the United States.
U.S. Soccer Federation spokesman Neil Buethe said a formal contract with Woods was still being worked on.
