Cant find the Tweet but I thought I read on Twitter this morning that he was hired as Head Coach of St Louis FC.

Found it. Nothing official, STLFC is announcing their new Head Coach today at 6pm. The Author Speculation is it's De Santos. Sorry I suck at links.

STLFC announced Anthiony Pulis as their manager

I thought NASL was finished 

Still very much up in the air, but it's looking increasingly like there will be at least one more season. Rumours late last week that US Soccer was open to allowing them up to three more seasons at D2 if they "bend the knee".

The interesting though not surprising part of the article is this: MDS confirmed that he wasn’t contacted by Canada Soccer about the men’s team coaching position. Octavio Zambrano was replaced by John Herdman, who moved over from the women’s side.

Would love to have had him coaching an MLS team, but he will learn a lot under Bob Bradley. Where he goes from here is tough to know, but either MLS team (maybe Canadian MLS team), CPL team, or CMNT....  LAFC has put quite of a coaching staff and MDS is top notch....

If I were Dos Santos, I’d stay the hell away of the Tire fire known as the CMNT.  He has a better MLS career to grow under.  I’d rather be learning under Bob Bradley than Jason devos, Nick Dasovic and any other ex-Nats, at least Bradley qualified to a World Cup and coached in Europe.

Well thank god you’re not MDS as he’s said his goal in to coach the MNT and I’ll welcome him home when it happens.

A bit disappointing he won't be a head coach/manager in his next job but a great chance to learn under Bradley. No doubt he will still have offers in a year, mayne more offers than now if he does well down there. He will come out more experienced. 

Plenty of time to hone his craft further before the national team beckons. But who knows with the CSA.

It's crazy that he did not get a head coaching offer from MLS with his CV.

I don't think that it's crazy. Aside from Rennie, what coach got a MLS job after coaching in NASL/USL? I think Savarese is the only one I can think of and from the looks of it dos Santos interviewed for the Timbers' job

Not uncommon in the MLS for a sacked coach to be replaced by the Assistant. He will be a head Coach in MLS soon enough.

Would it be surprising that Herdman fall flat and MDS comes in to rescue CMNT and youth programs.... Let's hope Herd succeeds to implement a plan that can get CMNT going, but MDS is the one to get us to the top which a WC appearance.... if it doesn't happen with the Herd....

Wilmer Cabrera, Houston: though he had a year with Chivas USA prior to coaching Rio Grande Valley

Brian Schmeltzer, Seattle

Fernando Clavijo, Colorado (indoor soccer)

Curt Onalfo, LAG: had prior experience managing SKC before being LAG assistant than managing LA2. Then replaced Arena as manager of LAG.

Colin Clarke, FCD

Bob Gansler, SKC

Steve Nicol, NER

Mike Petke, RSL: managed NYRB, then Real Monarchs in USL, then RSL

You can also add guys like Hyndman, Arena, Schmid, Bradley who all have college experience prior to becoming MLS head coach.

So the gap between MLS and NASL/USL is really an abyss?...... If it cannot be bridged by a coach that has taken 4 different teams (Montreal 2009 USL title, Fury 2015 NASL final, Swope Park 2016 USL final and Deltas 2017 NASL title) to the Championship game. ...which is unfortunate for players and coaches

I hope he does well with LAFC and then uses this as his next move up the ladder to that MLS head gig, which I would love to see him get.  A wonder which remaining available San Fran guys, Canadian or other, will get look during preseason or is Bradley's roster pretty set for now?

I don't think any of SF Delta Canadians are good enough for LAFC, not at the cost of int spot. And LAFC is making a lot of int spot signings. 

In a lot of way, MDS is in a good spot to learn from Bob Bradley, and set himself to get himself a MLS head coach gig in future. Seems like a lot of MLS assistants do get consideration for a head coaching gig.
