Former Uganda Cranes captain Ibrahim Sekagya has been named the Interim Head Coach of New York Red Bulls II for the remainder of the 2022 USL Championship season.
The development comes barely a day after the club parted ways with its head coach, Gary Lewis.
Sekagya is in his eighth season as an assistant coach with the Red Bulls II and has filled in as Head Coach for three matches during that span.
The former New York Red Bulls defender retired in 2015 after making 33 appearances with the club.
Prior to that, he spent six seasons playing for Red Bull Salzburg, where he won three Austrian Bundesliga titles and an Austrian Cup championship.
Sekagya will be coaching another Uganda talent, Steven Sserwadda.
Sserwadda plays as a midfielder for New York Red Bulls II, but he was recently promoted to the senior team and has so far made two appearances.
