 COACH BRETT MOSEN REJOINS TORONTO LYNX 

 
 
January 31, 2014-  The Toronto Lynx announced today, the return of USL Coach Brett Mosen to their senior coaching staff.  Mosen returns to the Toronto Lynx following his Head Coach and Director of coaching responsibilities, with both the Hamilton Rage FC and more recently KW United of the United Soccer Leagues (USL).  His return will reunite a coaching partnership with long time Lynx Head Coach Duncan Wilde and Technical Director Billy Steele as Toronto look to make yet another step forward in 2014. 

Mosen was previously brought in alongside Wilde and Steele, when the Lynx competed in USLPRO soccer and were also in the process of launching their (USL) Super Y League program. He was also responsible for launching the clubs first ever season of Lady Lynx 'W' league competition and he brings a major amount of knowledge and experience to one of Canada's leading player development programs.

Mosen was previously brought in alongside Wilde and Steele, when the Lynx competed in USLPRO soccer and were also in the process of launching their (USL) Super Y League program. He was also responsible for launching the clubs first ever season of Lady Lynx 'W' league competition and he brings a major amount of knowledge and experience to one of Canada's leading player development programs.

" I am excited at the opportunity to work with both Duncan & Billy again, we share the same philosophy in the game which has a clear focus on player development" Mosen said.  "The Lynx have had a major overhaul since I was last coaching here, with new ownership & a player development structure in place which has a clear pathway from youth into the senior game. Alongside my Pro team experience with the Lynx, I remember fondly, my very first Under 15 Toronto Lynx Super Y team in 2005, which included both Kyle Bekker and Ashtone Morgan, it's fantastic to see these players excel in their professional careers.  Sherif El Masri, Macca Wilde, Jonathan Parolini and Taylor Lord, who all went on to represent Canada at the U20 National level, together with Erik Hakim and Stephen Fattore, who also recently played PDL for the Toronto Lynx during their college years were a part of that team.   The Junior Lynx have come a long way forward since then, assisting over 350 players with scholarship opportunities & one of the most respected development programs not only within the USL but North America. I am very much looking forward to the challenge ahead & being part of the clubs future development"
 
Lynx Head Coach and Academy Director Duncan Wilde was very direct when asked about the details of Brett's appointment.  " Our club has been gaining momentum for the past few years at all levels within the USL.   We qualified no less than six of our nine teams for USL playoffs in 2013, reaching three Semi finals and one North American final, but unfortunately and as of yet, no Championship. I believe the re- appointment of Brett Mosen, his reunion with Billy Steele, Danny Stewart and myself, will impact significantly throughout the club, together with boosting our ongoing objectives of continued success within the elite player development process and our collective ambitions of achieving a North American Championship title in the very near future".
 
Mosen will re join Wilde's Senior Technical Staff and will primarily focus on PDL initiatives, while also assuming the Head Coach position of the U20 men's squad, together with the Senior boys Academy program. " It's fantastic to have him back here" added Wilde, "Brett is already assisting Danny with some of our W League objectives and I am very much looking forward, to formerly introducing him to the entire Junior Lynx Academy, at our very next training session at Monarch Park Stadium Dome on Saturday afternoon".
