The LA Galaxy announced today that the club has relieved Vice President of Soccer Operations Pete Vagenas of his duties, effective immediately.
“The club has made the decision to part ways with Pete Vagenas,” said LA Galaxy President Chris Klein. “After the last two seasons, we felt this move was in the best interest of the LA Galaxy going forward. Our search for a leader of our soccer operations department and a head coach remains ongoing. We’d like to thank Pete for all of his contributions to the LA Galaxy as a player and as a member of our soccer operations group.”
Vagenas previously played for the Galaxy during nine of his 13 years in Major League Soccer and was a part of the Galaxy’s 2002 and 2005 MLS Cup championships. He was named the LA Galaxy General Manager in November 2016 before returning to serve as Vice President of Soccer Operations and Director of the LA Galaxy Academy following the conclusion of the 2017 season.
The LA Galaxy will hold their final media availability of the 2018 MLS season today at StubHub Center at 9 a.m. PT.
