Frank Yallop's out of LA and thus out of the limelight and that seems to suit him just fine, at least according to Ann Killion of the San Jose Mercury News.
One of the highlights of the column:
"He is an experienced and popular coach who will, with the assistance of (John) Doyle, put together a functional soccer team.
"(Frank) Yallop never got that chance in two seasons with the L.A. Galaxy. He had to kowtow to the preposterous (Alexi) Lalas, the Galaxy's director of ridiculous thinking. And then he was handed an injured international superstar who effectively turned his team into
a three-ring circus. The low-key, no-nonsense soccer coach was ill suited to play head therapist for the traveling freak show."
