In the professional soccer coaching world, most coaches are on annual contracts as 1099 contractors for the club they represent. These contracts match the “soccer year,” typically running from June 1 to May 30 or July 1 to June 30. If a coach announces plans to begin working with another club, they are at risk of being penalized or even fired by their current club. For these reasons, Cincy SC at times has to be tight-lipped about future coaching assignments in order to protect those coaches’ other interests.
