Marcelo Neveleff is expected to be named the new head coach of Orlando City B entering the 2020 USL League One season, multiple sources confirmed to Pro Soccer USA.
Neveleff, who was hired in May as Orlando City’s academy director, previously worked as an assistant coach with the New England Revolution.
The Argentina native also has a USSF A coaching license.
It’s unclear whether Neveleff will remain as the club’s academy director while at the same time managing OCB. Neveleff is not coaching a development academy team this season, which runs from September 2019 to July 2020.
Javier Carrillo, who is also the academy’s director of coaching, could oversee the DA while Neveleff manages the USL team, according to club sources.
OCB head coach Fernando Jose de Argila Irurita was fired in July after the team posted a 3-12-5 record going into final eight games of the 2019 season.
Academy coach Roberto Sibaja, who took over OCB coaching duties on an interim basis shortly after, is currently coaching the U-18/U-19 team.
