Paul Shaw will no longer be an interim coach of FC New York. He has been named the head coach of the USL PRO team, effective Sept. 28, the team announced on Wednesday. "Taking over when Paul did was difficult, especially since he was a player on the team as well as assistant coach," FCNY president Doug Petersen said. "Paul pressed upon us how much he wanted the position and he has worked very hard with members of the area soccer community to be out watching matches or leading clinics.” Shaw and director of soccer Carlo Acquista have spent the last few weeks doing player evaluations and renewing or releasing players prior to the league deadline. “I am eager to get going and improve our performance for our second year,” Shaw said. FC New York finished its inaugural season at 6-11-7, two points from the last playoff spot.
