    LOUISVILLE, Kentucky – Former Jamaica international Tyrone Marshall was announced Thursday as the new head coach of the River City Rovers. 

    The club -- founded in 2010 and based in Louisville, Kentucky-- is a member of the United States’ USL Premier Development League (PDL).

    "I'm very excited about the opportunity to join the Rovers organization," said Marshall.  "The potential for soccer in Louisville is tremendous and the vision Rovers has outlined for the future is something I wanted to be a part of."

    In a decorated 15-year MLS career (1998-2012), Marshall appeared in a combined 362 regular- and post-season games with five teams, winning two MLS Cups (LA Galaxy: 2002, 2005) and three US Open Cups (LA Galaxy: 2005; Seattle Sounders: 2009, 2010).  He was also selected to two MLS All-Star games and played in two editions of the CONCACAF Champions League (2010-11: Seattle Sounders; 2011-12: Colorado Rapids)

    Internationally, Marshall won 83 caps for the Reggae Boyz from 2000-2010.  He took the field in eight matches over three CONCACAF Gold Cups (2003, 2005, 2009) and also made 27 appearances in three World Cup Qualifying campaigns (2002, 2006, 2010). 

    "Tyrone's playing career speaks for itself," said Rovers President and GM Nathan Pitcock. "His playing experience will be an invaluable asset for players at the PDL level, as he knows exactly what it takes to make it at the highest level."

    Marshall, 39, holds a USSF "A" License and, in addition to his duties as River City’s PDL head coach, he will also be working with the club’s youth academy.
