According to ESPN FC's Jeffrey Carisle, Chivas USA is targeting current LA Galaxy assistant coach Curt Onalfo for their head coaching vacancy.
Carisle cites multiple sources stating that Onalfo is Chivas' first choice for the job should he get a full commitment from the Rojiblancos' organization. The ESPN FC writer also notes, however, that Onalfo would stay with the Galaxy if he is unble to get the Chivas USA gig. In addition to his role as assistant, he's also led the Galaxy reserve league team to back to back West Division titles.
The report comes amid another report in the Miami Herald stating that Kenny Arena is returning to the Galaxy from the head coaching job at Florida International University.

The LA Galaxy are going to have a chance to get revenge for their stunning Western Conference Semifinal defeat to MLS Cup finalist Real Salt Lake right off the bat in 2014.

Both matches are likely to be sandwiched inbetween LA's CONCACAF Champions League participation. The Galaxy will play four of their first five matches at StubHub Center -- three of them being home matches as LA take on Chivas USA in the first SuperClasico on April 6 -- with their first road match being a trip to Rio Tinto Stadium to face RSL on March 22 which will be Salt Lake's home opener.
