MIAMI – Toronto FC head coach Greg Vanney was named CONCACAF Men’s Football Coach of the Year on Tuesday, after guiding the Canadian side to a historic 2017.
Under Vanney’s guidance, Toronto captured the Canadian Championship, the MLS Supporters’ Shield as the team with best regular-season record and the MLS Cup title.
TFC set the MLS record for most regular-season points (69) and equaled the 2014 Seattle Sounders for most wins in a single season (20).
The 43-year-old Vanney, a former United States international, is the first club coach to be honored in the award’s five-year history.
