TRIVIA: Father-son coaching staffs have happened before in MLS – who were they? | SIDELINE

The LA Galaxy announced on Monday a coaching staff addition with a familiar last name.

Kenny Arena, a former Galaxy Academy head coach and for the past two years the head coach at Florida International University, is the son of current LA Galaxy and former US national team head coach Bruce Arena. Beginning in 2014, Kenny Arena will serve as an assistant coach on his father's staff .

This announcement got the staff thinking about other father-son coaching staffs throughout the history of Major League Soccer.

We came up with two other instances in which a father and son served on the same coaching staff. Can you name them both, and perhaps find another we may have neglected?

We'll share every qualifying answer next week during our next round of MLS history trivia.
