Have the LA Galaxy made progress with recruiting a new coaching staff?
It appears so. Toiling away at the 2017 MLS Combine, beat writer Sam Stejskal just sent out a tweet claiming Sounders assistant coach Ante Razov was spotted in attendance wearing a LA Galaxy polo.

If it turns out Razov didn’t spill coffee all over his shirt and has actually joined Curt Onalfo’s coaching ranks, this is a real get, and just not because LA have managed to unearth a prized asset from a heated rival.
A prolific goalscorer with 144 goals and 66 assists during his years in the league, the Whittier native is a Galaxy original, selected by LA in the inaugural SuperDraft before later terrorizing the Galaxy for years as a member of the Chicago Fire, where he remains their all-time leading scorer.
Razov is also a fiery personality, having clashed with the likes of Greg Andrulis and, interestingly enough, Dave Sarachan. However, his vast experience in MLS as an attacker and an assistant coach should prove valuable to the new-look Galaxy.
