Chris Albright hired as FC Cincinnati GM

After FC Cincinnati spent nearly two months looking for a new general manager, the process was officially closed on Monday with ex-player and front-office veteran Chris Albright, who was finalized as the club’s next GM.

Albright, 42, of Philadelphia, arrives at FC Cincinnati after serving nearly eight years on the football side of the Philadelphia Union organization, most recently as its technical director. In his new position, Albright will be tasked with overseeing a technical overhaul of FC Cincinnati, and he must quickly find the club’s next head coach.

“Our search for our next general manager has been extensive,” said Jeff Berding, president of FC Cincinnati, in a press release. “Our new GM would be someone who knew what it took to win in Major League Soccer, a non-negotiable experience. To meet that requirement, we are delighted to have found the best person for the job.”
