Leo Bertos.  Weston Bears NSW Northern NPL

From their Facebook page...

The Weston Workers Bears Football Club are very pleased to announce that Leo Bertos will be joining the Bears senior coaching squad for 2020 and beyond.

After a solid 2019 season Leo will lead our first team and will be very well supported by a great team on and off the park.

Whilst remaining with the Bears Kew Jaliens has had several offers to move to Europe to further his coaching career and we envisage that he will make the move some time in 2020.

Bears President Rod Henderson said “We are very pleased to have a high calibre coach in Leo join our team. We are excited for Kew, we always knew his desire to coach in Europe and expect our relationship with him to last for many years to come. Leo and Kew will work very closely together over the coming months to ensure a seamless transition.

Leo Bertos said, "I am thankful to Weston for giving me the opportunity to further my coach development in the NNSWF NPL. The club has a rich history in our region and I was excited to hear about where the club wants to head in the coming years. I am looking forward to meeting the staff and the playing group and working hard to continue the progress Kew and the squad have had over the last couple of years."

Bertos who has played over 250 professional games and represented New Zealand in 50 plus games including playing in all matches in the 2010 World Cup is a fantastic addition to the club and further enhances the solid foundation the Bears have put in place over the past few years.

Along with the addition of Leo the bears have strengthened their youth and SAP system with the appointment of former Emerging Jets Coach, Chris Akins, as Technical Director and club legend Trevor Morris as the Mentor for our SAP coaches.

Jake Gleeson.

NCAA Div 1, Saint Mary's College, California

https://smcgaels.com/news/2020/3/25/womens-soccer-wsoc-romagnolo-rounds-out-staff-with-three-hires.aspx

The final piece in the coaching trio is Jake Gleeson. Gleeson will act as the goalkeeping coach and brings nine years of professional playing experience with him. Born and raised in New Zealand, Gleeson played nearly a decade for Major League Soccer's Portland Timbers and spent 2011 to 2018 as a member of the Kiwis' national team. In 2012, he suited up for his country at the Olympic Games in England.

In 2014, Gleeson won the USL Championship while playing on a loan with the Sacramento Republic and posted a shutout in goal to claim the title. He hoisted hardware the very next year as he returned to Portland and helped the Timbers win their first MLS championship in club history.

Gleeson has previous coaching experience with FC Portland as a goalkeepers coach and served as a member of the MLS Players' Association. He is currently in the midst of completing his undergraduate degree from Massey University in Wellington, New Zealand.

"Jake is a wonderful addition to our staff with his high level playing and goalkeeping background," said Romagnolo.

Darren Bazeley.  Back to NZ as Danny’s assistant and U20 coach. 
Asked the question earlier in the thread whether he was still at Colorado. Didn’t realise he was most recently at Newcastle Jets.
