The Park City Red Wolves SC are proud to announce Scott Mackenzie as the club’s new head coach ahead of the 2021 USL League Two season.
Mackenzie will take the reins of the Park City Red Wolves U23 team in just their second season of existence. Playing in the USL League Two, the top professional league in the US, the Park City Red Wolves had a strong 2019 season, producing players who signed professionally with their parent USL League One Team in Chattanooga.
Mackenzie will not only look to elevate players from Park City to the higher professional level but also dominate the mountain division of the USL League 2 and receive a place in the US Open Cup.
Born in Dunfermline, Scotland and raised in Derby, England, Mackenzie brings a wealth of coaching experience from multiple countries to Park City. He worked with Chesterfield FC Academy and also possesses specific knowledge of the youth soccer landscape in Utah, from his current role as the Boys Director of Coaching at Utah Avalanche, a trailblazing club in both boys and girls football and only one of two clubs in Utah to gain admission to the Boys ECNL, one of the top national league in the US.
He also has USSF A license and UEFA B qualifications, bringing him into an elite group of coaches.
The Red Wolves organization includes a professional first team (Chattanooga Red Wolves SC of USL League One) and another League Two side (Dalton Red Wolves SC, based in Georgia). Mackenzie’s hiring completes the club’s technical committee, which consists of First Team Head Coach Jimmy Obleda, General Manager and President Sean McDaniel, First Team Assistant Coach Kevin Sawchak and Dalton Red Wolves Head Coach Saif Alsafeer.
“This has been the vision for our organisation since day one. Having a coalition of talented soccer minds helping build and grow our player pool is going to pay dividends. It’s always been important to us to have a true path to pro for young soccer players.
Now that we have our technical committee complete and all searching for the same style of player and same quality of person, the process will be be streamlined even further,” said McDaniel.
