Vancouver Whitecaps name Thordarson coach

Toronto Star THE CANADIAN PRESS VANCOUVER – The Vancouver Whitecaps named Teitur Thordarson as the new head coach of the United Soccer League team Tuesday. Thordarson, 55, a native of Iceland, spent three years as head coach of Estonia's national team. He replaces Bob Lilley who was fired Sept. 18 when the Whitecaps were eliminated from the first-round of the playoffs after struggling to a 9-7-12 record. Lilley had led the Whitecaps to the USL First Division championship in 2006.
