Canada Soccer names former men’s captain deVos interim general secretary

Canada Global (Web News) Jason deVos, a former captain of Canada’s men’s national team, has been appointed interim general secretary of Canada Soccer, the organization’s national governing body announced on Tuesday.

Earl Cochrane, whose resignation was announced last week, will be replaced in the position on May 12 by DeVos, who played 49 times for the national team between 1997 and 2004. In the midst of a protracted labour dispute with the men’s and women’s national teams, Cochrane became the most recent senior Canada Soccer official to depart the organisation.

In February, Nick Bontis announced his resignation as president of Canada Soccer and stated that a change was necessary to hasten the settlement of the men’s and women’s teams’ union disputes.

DeVos, 49, has worked with the national governing organisation for the previous six years and, as director of development, is a part of the Canada Soccer executive leadership team.

DeVos will be the organization’s operational chief in his new position, working closely with the board and in conjunction with the members of Canada Soccer and other important stakeholders.
