Clarhaut, 36, built a reputation for himself in Sweden after scaling up the tiers of professional soccer with his offensive style of play and an ability to recruit and develop young players.
“We have always kept tabs on Americans coaching abroad and Brian caught our attention as having quickly climbed the Swedish soccer pyramid, an impressive and difficult achievement,” General Manager, Business & Technical Operations Andrew Forrest said. “We believe his high press and energetic style will help us win games and entertain fans. His intense and modern outlook on the game coupled with his desire to win made him the perfect candidate.”
His first head coaching position came in the 2017/18 season after he was named head coach of Nyköpings BIS in Sweden’s third division, where he served as the club’s assistant the year prior.
