[April 16, 2021 – Harmon, Guam] Guam National Team Head Coach Karl Dodd departed Friday morning to his home in Australia after officially resigning earlier in the week to attend to a family emergency.
“Due to a family emergency, Guam National Team Head Coach Karl Dodd recently advised us of his decision to resign,” said Marvin “Ike” Iseke, Guam Football Association General Secretary. “We supported his decision to put his family first and continue to support him through this tough situation. His decision was made at a very difficult time as he was preparing for the upcoming Asian Qualifiers of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ and AFC Asian Cup China 2023™ to be completed in June in China. We thank Karl for all his contributions to Guam’s national program and wish him and his family all the best during this time and in future endeavors.”
Dodd was appointed as Head Coach of the Matao, Guam Men’s National Team in January 2018. During his tenure in Guam, he earned his AFC Pro Diploma, the highest football coaching license in the continent, from the Football Federation of Australia. Dodd also encouraged the development of a National Program badge – the Guahan Futbol badge – which is proudly displayed on National Team match kits starting from 2019. Past and present National Team players contributed to the final design of the badge in a project spearheaded by Men’s National Team player Mark Chargualaf. .....
