Bezbatchenko will leave his job as senior director of player relations and competition for MLS to take over the front office after Toronto FC - which is 4-14-11 this season - fired president and general manager Kevin Payne on Sept. 5. Earl Cochrane, Toronto's director of team and player operations, was also fired.

The 31-year-old Bezbatchenko is a lawyer with degrees from the University of Cincinnati and the University of Richmond. A native of Westerville, Ohio, he played midfield for the second-tier Pittsburgh Riverhounds in 2004-05 and joined the MLS league offices in 2010.
