Sporting Kansas City technical director and head coach Peter Vermes will remain with the club through the 2017 season after signing a contract extension. Sporting KC announced the move on Tuesday.
“What’s been important for us is continuity on and off the field and this decision allows us to keep that continuity in place for the foreseeable future,” Sporting KC CEO Robb Heineman said. “We love that Peter has always been a long-term thinker and I believe the building blocks around turning this into a great organization long-term are in place. Having another four years to advance this cause is going to be very valuable to the team. We love that Peter has the commitment that he has to this city, this organization and to the development of the players.”
