Javier Perez was named as an Assistant Coach for Toronto FC on February 17, 2021. He took over as temporary coach when Chris Armas was fired on July 4th 2021 and was later named as haeadcoach until the end of the 2021 season.
Perez, a native of Spain, most recently worked as an assistant coach with New York City FC, where he spent four seasons (2016-20). Prior to his work with NYCFC, Perez spent four years with US Soccer, serving as head coach of the U-18 Men’s National Team and assistant coach with both the U.S. Men’s National Team and U.S. U-20 Men’s National Team. He was part of the senior men’s national team’s staff at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil and the U-20 squad at the 2015 U-20 FIFA World Cup in New Zealand. Before coming to the US in 2007, Perez spent six years at Real Madrid as a head coach for youth teams from U-9 to U-19 at the club’s foundation development center (2001-2007).
Perez holds his UEFA Pro Licence, UEFA “A” Licence and a Ph.D. in Sports Science from Universidad De Leon in Spain.
Despite a bright start he could not gather momentum for the club during the 2021 season and ultimately came up short in the quest to reach the playoffs and to qualify for the Champions league. A day after the loss to Montreal in the Canadian Championship that officially brought the 2021 season to a close, Perez left the club and was succeeded by Bob Bradley.
