For it to be relevant to Ottawa, should have been a groundhog

In the Wiki entry on the Ottawa coat of arms, the SUPPORTERS are described as:

"Dexter a timber trimmer of the date 1850 holding in the exterior hand a trimming axe head downwards and on the sinister an officer of the Civil Service Rifle Regiment all proper"

There's quite a bit to work with there.

At first I thought that crest was a joke, then I see it's almost a carbon copy of the AM crest with Canadian elements. My first emotion is distaste, but considering the history behind the crest I'm hoping it will grow on me.

It's not the real Crest though is it. There photo is hosted along with a bunch of hamilton city mock jerseys and crests. 

I do like the beaver nonchalantly skiing backwards though. 

No, not the real crest. Just something I threw together for fun.

While some have said this is back to de Guzman, others have denied it and point out that it says "North America" not "Canada" which suggests a potential MLS connection. The best guess so far, in my opinion, is recently fired Chicago Fire coach and former Atletico Madrid player Veljko Paunovic (credit goes to whoever [TFC]langilleski is on the CPL discord)

I just came on to guess the exact same name, Paunovic, I just said it in response to that tweet. Good thinking. He happens to have won a world u-21 championship with Serbia, so for youth he is expert, he knows the NA market and mindset, and is very close to At Madrid having played there, where he was greatly admired. 

He was released by Fire last November.

I don't have an opinion on him because I don't know enough about his career. What are your thoughts? Would he be a good hire?

Reading around, things seem mixed. Did well youth coaching but only had one good season with the Fire (Schweinsteiger's first). Still, doesn't mean he'll be bad for the CPL, the player development focus of the league might make him a good fit

I'm going with Paunovic as well, saw it on r/CanPL as well. I'm assuming Floro's name has already come up in this thread, yes? :)

Somebody guessed David Villa and I had to smile, because I couldn't easily think of a no to the possibility lol. Never mind, I forgot about the Queens USL investment lol.

big failure in chicago..got four full seasons and couldnt come up with anything interesting

Finished 3rd overall in the 2017 standings.. with that club in this era you have to say that's pretty decent.

His resume seems to suggest he could do a lot better so this would be a great signing if true.

David Villa would be a good guess as well.  Now that he's retired Ottawa would be a great place for a young family.

Oh yeah for sure, but you probably missed my edit, I just remembered he has a big thing going on with USL in Queens. Would've been cool though for sure.

Oh and I did know that as well.  Tough break but they could do better with managerial experience anyhow.

Floro would be very interesting. I think we'd see a very different brand of football from him at the CPL level, compared of what he thought was best for the CanMNT.

I'm also ok with DeGuz resurfacing. Forgive and forget right?
