PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- The Portland Timbers have selected Trevor James and Amos Magee as assistants and Adam Smith as goalkeeper coach for their inaugural Major League Soccer season.
James comes to the Timbers from the Los Angeles Galaxy while the other assistant coaches were already with the team, which was part of the USSF Division-2 Pro League last season.
Portland also named Nik Wald as the club's head athletic trainer and Karim Derqaoui as the strength and conditioning coach.
The assistants will serve under head coach John Spencer. The Timbers and the Vancouver Whitecaps join MLS in 2011.
