They didn’t make the playoffs that begin later today, but the Vancouver Whitecaps have just announced they’ve extended the contract of head coach Carl Robinson through 2020.
Robinson has led the team to the playoffs twice, helped the ‘Caps capture the Cascadia Cup twice, and led them to their first Voyageurs Cup title last year.
He has also managed the team to a pair of appearances in the CONCACAF Champions league; they will compete in the quarterfinals as the top seed in February.
In addition to Robinson, the Whitecaps have given multi-year extensions to first team assistants Martyn Pert and Gordon Forrest.
Robinson and Pert leave for South America tomorrow, to begin their off-season scouting.
