The San Jose Earthquakes have hired former Arsenal and Aston Villa executive Tom Fox as President to replace Dave Kaval, who will shift his focus to the Oakland A’s, according to a San Jose Mercury News report. The club is expected to introduce Fox in an announcement on Tuesday.
The Merc quote Fox as saying: “Everybody believes there is still growth for San Jose,” Fox said Wednesday in an interview from London. “The charge is to find ways to continue to put San Jose in a competitive place. To do that by finding good players locally and finding good players in the U.S. and abroad and to grow our commercials.”
Quakes Talk has not yet independently confirmed these reports.
