"Caesar has great experience coaching in the MISL with the Dallas Sidekicks. He was the first piece of the puzzle that needed to fit in order for us to build something special with the Outlaws. I am very excited to be able to work with such an experienced coach to build a high profile teamand bring a winning tradition back to Dallas / Ft Worth."
Caesar Cervin, a Texas born athlete, grew up in Europe. While there he was introduced to soccer and found his passion in life.
