Toronto FC has signed general manager Ali Curtis to a multi-year contract extension.

The 42-year-old Curtis joined Toronto in January 2019 in the wake of Tim Bezbatchenko's departure to run his hometown team in Columbus.

Curtis previously served as sporting director for the New York Red Bulls and spent eight years in the Major League Soccer head office.

As a player, Curtis won the M.A.C. Hermann Trophy in 1999 as the top male collegiate soccer player in the United States. He remains Duke University’s all-time leader in goals scored with 53.

Drafted second overall in the 2001 MLS SuperDraft, he played for the Tampa Bay Mutiny, D.C. United and Dallas through 2004.
