Marcelo Neveleff was appointed head coach of USL League One side Orlando City B, the club officially announced on Friday.
“We are very excited for Marcelo to take on this important role with Orlando City B,” said Orlando City EVP of Soccer Operations Luiz Muzzi. “He brings a wealth of experience to the table having served as a coach, academy director, and a scout throughout his career.”
“We also know his history working with Oscar [Pareja] will be very valuable to the club,” added Muzzi. “With all of his experience and knowledge of the soccer culture here in Florida, we think this is a perfect fit for the long-term vision for Orlando City.”
Neveleff left the New England Revolution to join Orlando City last May as the team’s academy director — a role he’ll maintain while overseeing OCB. He was the Revolutions first-team assistant coach since 2017 before joining the Lions.
The Argentine has a USSF “A” licensed coaching license.
