Head Coaching Change for the Under-23 Team
MONTREAL - CF Montréal announced on Monday that its U23 head coach Nicolas Gagnon will not be back in 2023.
"I would like to thank Nicolas for his ten years at the Club. He has clearly contributed in developing local talent, and the Club's next generation," said Academy Director, Marinos Papageorgopoulos. "We wish him the best of luck for what's next in his career."
"I would like to thank the Club for the opportunity I had during all these years," said Gagnon. "This leads me towards a different path and I am grateful for the trust the Club has placed in me during my journey."
Nicolas Gagnon held this role during the 2022 season in the Première Ligue de Soccer du Québec (PLSQ). Before joining the Club, Gagnon had been an educator with the Regional Associations of Richelieu-Yamaska, the South Shore and the Eastern Townships programs. He's been a part of the CF Montréal Academy staff since 2011. He had previously coached the U-17 team within the Club's developmental structure.
In 2022, in its first PLSQ season, CF Montréal U23 finished sixth in the standings, with a 12-8-2 record and 38 points.
