CHICAGO (AP) - Nelson Rodriguez is moving from Major League Soccer to the U.S. Soccer Federation in the new position of managing director of national team advisory services.

The USSF said Thursday that the 49-year-old Rodríguez will set up an office that will be available for career guidance for players in the men’s and women’s national team player pools.

A member of the New Jersey local organizing committee for the 1994 World Cup and a former executive with the New York/New Jersey MetroStars, Rodriguez spent 14 years working for MLS, where he rose to executive vice president of competition, technical and game operations.

He was president of Chivas USA from the league’s takeover in February until the team folded last month. While at MLS, Rodriguez also spent time as senior vice president of strategic development at Soccer United Marketing.
