Canada name Colin Miller national team interim head coach for the third time

Colin Miller is getting a third shot at a first win as head coach of the Canadian national team.

The Canadian Soccer Association announced on Thursday that Miller would be the team’s interim head coach for the second time this year for their friendly against Costa Rica on May 28 at Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton.

“I’m the proudest man in Canada, once again,” Miller said in a press release. “We will be hoping to build on the positive way we finished our last camp together with a result away to USA, and also looking to build on the good work that Tony Fonseca did with the team during the recent camp in Qatar.”

Miller was in charge in January when Canada lost 4-0 to Denmark in Tucson, Ariz., and tied the United States in a scoreless draw in Houston. He won’t have to travel far as he’s currently in his first season in charge of NASL club FC Edmonton.

He had previously held the interim title in 2003 when his team went winless in three games.

Still without a full-time head coach since Stephen Hart resigned last year, Canada are winless in four friendlies played this year.

The squad for the Costa Rica game is expected to be out sometime next week.
