It's been just over a week since the Crew's new Sporting Director and Head Coach Gregg Berhalter arrived in Columbus. Berhalter's first seven days in the Arch City were busy with media requests, photo shoots, scouting and even some entertainment at a Columbus Blue Jackets game.
Here are the highlights of Berhalter's first week in Columbus.
MONDAY - 11/11
Berhalter's first day in Ohio was highlighted by digital signage in downtown Columbus at the corner of Broad and High Streets welcoming the new Crew boss (above) and his first photo shoot with the Black & Gold. Later in the day, Berhalter sat down for his first interview at the helm of the Crew.
After privately meeting with some of his new players for the first time, Berhalter met the Columbus media for the first time alongside club Owner-Operator and Chairman Anthony Precourt and President Mark McCullers in his introductory press conference.
