SANDY, UT (Tuesday, May 29, 2018) – In response to today’s reports of criminal charges against Real Monarchs SLC Head Coach Mark Briggs, the club released the following statement:
“Real Salt Lake will remain in close communication with local authorities and MLS / USL offices throughout this investigation. The Club will not have further comment on this matter until the conclusion of our investigation, at which time additional and further disciplinary action may or may not be taken.”
Briggs is suspended – effective immediately – from his coaching duties, beginning with tonight’s Monarchs home game against Sacramento Republic FC, and will be placed on administrative leave until further notice. Former RSL defender Jamison Olave – an assistant with the Monarchs since February, 2017 – will serve as the USL side’s interim head coach.
