MEDFORD, Ore. — The Rogue Valley Timbers announced Monday the hiring of 11-year Major League Soccer veteran David Horst as the club's newest Director of Coaching.

Horst will be in charge of "overseeing player and coaching development" for all RV Timbers teams and their 1500 players, according to a press release from the club. In a corresponding move, Kevin Primerano will become the full-time Executive Director focusing on day-to-day operations, handing over the director of coaching duties to Horst.

Prior to this job, Horst served as the Assistant Technical Director for the Real Salt Lake youth academy.

During Horst's 11-year career in the MLS, he earned an MLS Championship with Real Salt Lake in 2009 before being selected by the Portland Timbers in the 2010 expansion draft. Playing primarily as a defender, Horst made 233 professional appearances and scored 10 goals.

Horst is expected to relocate to Southern Oregon at the beginning of January with his wife, Sarah, who grew up in Medford, and his daughter, Harper.
