Ally Mackay hired as GM of D.C. United from Nashville, say sources

D.C. United has made a significant move by hiring Ally Mackay as its general manager and chief soccer officer. Mackay, who previously served as the assistant GM at Nashville SC, is expected to bring his expertise in building a competitive MLS outfit to the Black-and-Red.

The hiring of Mackay comes after D.C. United parted ways with Lucy Rushton in 2022 and saw longtime soccer executive Dave Kasper take on technical matters. With Mackay now on board, the club will be looking to make key decisions, including the hiring of a new manager following Wayne Rooney’s resignation.

Mackay’s track record at Nashville SC, where he helped the club qualify for the postseason in every year since its inception in 2020, bodes well for D.C. United as they aim for a reboot of the technical side of the club. With the team’s recent struggles to make the playoffs, Mackay’s appointment signals a new era for D.C. United as they look to improve their performance in the MLS.
ESPN has confirmed that Ally Mackay has been hired as the general manager and chief soccer officer for D.C. United. The Washington Post was the first to report this news. D.C. United has officially been without a GM since 2022, following the departure of Lucy Rushton. Mackay, who previously served as the assistant GM at Nashville SC, will be tasked with hiring a new manager following the resignation of Wayne Rooney. This presents an opportunity for a complete reboot of the technical side of the club, as D.C. United looks to improve its performance after failing to qualify for the playoffs in the last four seasons.
