Canada Soccer: Mauro Biello is not the long-term solution
In search of a head coach for its men’s team since the departure of John Herdman, Canada Soccer does not intend to hand over the reins to Quebecer Mauro Biello permanently.
In a press release on Wednesday, the federation confirmed that the former Montreal Impact instructor would fill the interim role, but that it was continuing its search to fill this position.

Biello has not been idle since he was appointed on August 28. Since Herdman joined Toronto FC, his assistant was tasked with preparing the players for Canada’s friendly match on October 13 against Japan. The next major tournament in which the men’s team could participate is the Copa America, in June 2024.
“This is the opportunity of a lifetime and I thank (acting general secretary Jason deVos) and the entire Canada Soccer Board of Directors for their support and trust. I am truly honored to be able to take on this coaching role as our men’s program begins an important qualifying period for the 2024 Copa Ameerica,” said Biello.
Before choosing a new head coach, Canada Soccer would like to fill the position of general secretary, which should be done by the end of the year. Earl Cochrane, who held these positions, resigned in April.
Biello was hired as Herdman’s assistant in 2018. He previously coached Montreal from 2015-17 and Canada’s Under-20s in 2022-23.
