Roderick then quickly made the transition from player to coach, joining the Sidekicks' staff as an assistant for one season and starting his work with top-level youth teams in the Dallas area in 1999. He has held a prominent coaching role since 2000 with the Dallas Texans, who rank among the America’s top youth soccer programs.
