Meet FC Cincinnati's Yoann Damet, MLS's youngest, most unlikely coach

As MLS's newest team, perhaps it makes sense that FC Cincinnati have the league's youngest head or assistant coach on their payroll. But that nugget is only the beginning of Frenchman Yoann Damet's unusual road to the MLS coaching ranks.

As detailed by FCCincinnati.com's Charlie Hatch, Damet is one of only two coaches in MLS who has no prior experience playing professional or at least collegiate soccer. Instead, he pursued the field the way most of us pursue ours: through school.
