Minnesota United FC hired Ian Fuller as an assistant coach, the latest in a flurry of administrative moves for the club, which begins play in Major League Soccer as soon as the 2017 season.

In December, former assistant Carl Craig was promoted to head coach so his predecessor, Manny Lagos, could focus exclusively on his role as sporting director (general manager). Fuller was most recently an assistant with Orlando City of MLS.

"I'm thrilled to join an organization with a winning pedigree," Fuller said in a new release. "I've gotten to know Manny Lagos and Carl Craig over the years and I'm excited to be working with two very talented coaches who have a lot of experience.

"We have an extremely talented and dynamic roster and I can't wait to begin working with the players."
