Published November 21, 1995
Doug Logan will reportedly be named the first Commissioner of MLS today. Logan has an "entertainment and arena-business background" and will be asked to steer the league during their inaugural season which will being play in April (USA TODAY, 11/21). Alan Rothenberg is expected to formalize his future role with the MLS this week. With the "need for a hands-on leader," Rothenberg passed on being full-time Commissioner. Rothenberg has been viewed as "having spread himself too thinly between MLS, his law practice and the presidency of the [USSF]." Grahame Jones reports the move has been "mutually agreed-upon" and that Rothenberg is "not being forced out" (L.A. TIMES, 11/21).
