Fans welcome Coach Sigi at FX McRory's; Lots of press

Sounders fans met new head coach Sigi Schmid in person last night at FX MCRory's. Here is a report from the Emerald City Supporters at www.WeAreECS.com.

Dave Clark was also on hand and reports back to fans from www.SounderatHeart.com.

The day after Schmid's introduction reports are still filtering in. In This morning's P-I the headline is "Schmid moved by Seattle family ties." Art Thiel of the P-I editorializes with "Sounders started at top for this hire." In the Tacoma News Tribune it's "Seriously, Schmid wants Sounders, fans to have fun." Don Ruiz writes that the "Sounders snag MLS coach of the year." In the Everett Herald the words lead with "Henderson: Sounders found perfect fit." GOAL.com tries to bring Seattle fans back down to Earth with "Great Expectations." Jose Romero in the Seattle Times adds in more with "Sounders coach Sigi Schmid brings championship experience to new club." Steve Kelley of the Times has an opinion piece that reads "Seattle Sounders strike gold in getting Sigi Schmid as coach." Soccer America has more today with "Seattle and Schmid officially join up."
