Well, it didn’t take long for Phil Neville to find another job.

Canada Soccer announced today that fired Inter Miami CF coach was joining the Canadian men’s national team’s coaching staff.

Former Crystal Palace, Coventry City and Millwall defender Richard Shaw has signed on head John Herdman’s coaching staff. Their appointments are effective immediately and they will be part of the technical staff for the upcoming Concacaf Nations League Finals in Las Vegas.

Neville was sacked by struggling Inter Miami CF on June 1.

“Both Phil and Richard bring with them winning experiences at the highest levels and have worked with some of the premier leagues top managers during their careers,” Herdman said in a statement. “They’ll work as positional and unit coaches with the aim of helping us to win our first trophy in over two decades.”

Canada will face Panama in the CNL semifinals at Allegiant Stadium on June 15. A win will see the Canadians meet winners of USA or Mexico for the country’s first trophy since the 2000 Concacaf Gold Cup.
