The more things change… well, in the National Women’s Soccer League, they keep changing.
Such is life as a head coach in this league, anyway. Five of 12 teams that played in the 2023 season need to hire a full-time head coach. The Kansas City Current filled one vacancy with the recent hire of former United States women’s national team head coach Vlatko Andonovski, but another job opened on Friday, when Racing Louisville FC announced that head coach Kim Björkegren would not be retained. (The two expansion teams for next season, Bay FC and Utah Royals FC, already hired coaches.)
With so many job openings, it begs the question: Which is the most appealing? For now, we’ll leave the Boston job in a separate category since the team won’t begin play until 2026 and needs to make a lot of other hires before a head coach.
Below is a look at each current NWSL head-coaching vacancy, with the pros and cons of each situation — and ranked by how appealing each ultimately is to a prospective candidate right now.
