SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Real Salt Lake has parted ways with Real Salt Lake and Real Monarchs Assistant Coach Matt Glaeser so he can join the staff of fellow Real Monarchs head coach Mark Briggs at Sacramento Republic FC.

“We want to thank Matt for his work bringing championships to the Monarchs and adding his expertise to the RSL staff.  Since he arrived with Mark Briggs in 2017, he has been a tremendous addition to the organization and when the opportunity arose for him to work with Mark again, we were open to him pursuing that option and wish him the best with Sacramento,” said RSL Executive Vice President of Soccer Operations Rob Zarkos.

Glaeser joined the Real Monarchs coaching staff in 2017 where he immediately helped the club win the USL Regular Season Shield during his first year on the job. In 2019, Glaeser played a pivotal role from the bench when the club won its inaugural USL Championship.

“The Club would like to thank Matt for the dedication he has shown to his craft throughout his tenure at Real Salt Lake,” Assistant General Manager Tony Beltran said.  “His efforts at all levels have contributed greatly to moving the Club into the level of elite development it aspires to be. We wish him all the best in his next endeavor with Sacramento.”

Glaeser’s departure requires filling. The club announced during a press release that “club will immediately begin a search to round out the rest of the staff.”

Earlier this month, first team Manager Freddy Juarez announced the hiring of Assistant Coach Pablo Mastroeni and Goalkeeper Coach Ignacio Hernandez.

Sacramento Republic FC is currently a member of the USL Western Conference. However, starting in 2022 Sacramento will be introduced to MLS as the 29th expansion team in league history. Former Monarchs Manager Mark Briggs is currently the first team manager for Sacramento.
