After former coach Steve Nichols left the club to take the head coaching position at Loyola University Maryland, Quaranta was quickly called in to fill the vacancy. A ten-year pro in MLS, Quaranta scored 28 goals in 180 appearances for D.C. United, L.A. Galaxy, and New York Red Bulls. He also made 15 appearances for the U.S. National Team, scoring against Honduras in the 2009 Gold Cup group stage.
The 29-year-old launched Pipeline Soccer Club, a youth squad, with friend Sean Rush, three years ago. According to Sports Illustrated's Brian Straus, Quaranta "wanted to provide a place where kids could learn what really was needed to reach the next level."
Quaranta will take over a Bohs team that reached the playoffs for the first time in their short history last season. Baltimore finished 8-1-5 last season, placing second in the Mid-Atlantic Division.
Baltimore begins its 14-game schedule on May 17th against the Northern Virginia Royals. Their first home match is on May 31st against NJ-LUSO Parma. All of the Bohemians' home matches will be played at Calvert Hall College, with matches kicking off at 5:30 pm.
