New Chivas USA head coach Wilmer Cabrera announced the first addition to his technical staff Tuesday, as the club named Paul Caffrey assistant coach.

Caffrey, 46, has worked extensively with Cabrera, having served as a fellow assistant to Oscar Pareja with the Colorado Rapids the last two seasons, in addition to being Cabrera's assistant with the U-17 U.S. Men's National Team 2007-12.

A native of Ireland, Caffrey was a U-17 Republic of Ireland international and played for a short time for University College of Dublin Association FC and Bohemians FC before moving to the United States, where he played collegiately at Adelphi University, and was named an All-American in 1990. In 1991, he won the U.S. Open Cup with the Brooklyn Italians, and eventually played for the Long Island Rough Riders, the same club Cabrera finished his playing career with.

Caffrey also has head coaching experience at the junior college level, with Suffolk County Community College from 2002-07.

At the moment, Chivas' official website has Othoniel Gonzalez listed as the other regular assistant coach and Claine Plummer as the team's goalkeeping coach. Both Gonzalez and Plummer joined the first team staff last summer.
