The Maryland Bays are expected to name Gary Hindley their head coach Tuesday at a news conference in Columbia.
Hindley, who coached the Orlando Lions last year in the American Soccer League, will succeed Pete Caringi, who resigned last month to become head coach at the University of Maryland Baltimore County.
Bays owner John Liparini said last night, "I like his [Hindley's] experience and knowledge of the league."
Liparini said the Bays were close to coming to an agreement with former Baltimore Blast player Dave MacWilliams a few weeks ago, "but that fell through when Dave decided it was too far for him to commute from Philadelphia."
Hindley was left without a team to coach this season when Orlando merged with the Fort Lauderdale Strikers.
