From Player to Coach

By The Numbers: From Player to Coach

Orlando City’s new Head Coach James O’Connor logged over 4,000 minutes for Orlando City SC in its USL days. He also played alongside Dom Dwyer who he will now coach in MLS.

In 2016, James O’Connor lead Louisville City to a 17 match un-beaten streak. That team made it all the way to the Eastern Conference final before falling to Red Bulls II. In 2017, an O’Connor lead Lousiville would take the USL crown.

Orlando City has reached the midway point (17 games played) of the season. The Lions are 9th in the East, 4 points out of a playoff spot.

Orlando City’s next match will be its 120th in MLS. The team has a 37-50-32 record, with 143 points.

That’s how many games goalkeeper Joe Bendik and midfielder Cristian Higuita need to be the all-time leaders in the club history in MLS. They are currently tied in 2nd with 84 MLS appearances. Forward Cyle Larin is the all-time leader with 87.
