FORMER Wigan Athletic boss Owen Coyle is the new head coach of MLS outfit Houston Dynamo.

Coyle has been out of work since leaving the DW Stadium 12 months ago after a disappointing start to the season.

But he has been chosen to succeed Dominic Kinnear as only the second head coach in Houston’s short history.

“First and foremost I’m thankful for the opportunity to come to the Houston Dynamo,” Coyle said.

“It is nice to be wanted by a fantastic club and I feel we have a great opportunity to put a team on the pitch that is pleasing on the eye and can win games.

“I’ve been watching Houston Dynamo for many years and I know the atmosphere of the supporters.

“The league is thriving and the opportunity to join a big club like the Dynamo is very exciting for me,” he told the club’s official website.
