CHARLESTON, S.C. – The Charleston Battery announced Monday that the club and head coach Michael Anhaeuser have parted ways following the conclusion of the 2021 season.
“On behalf of my family, our ownership group and the entire organization, we thank Coach Anhaeuser for the immense impact he has had on this club and the community, both as a player and coach. We wish him all of the best moving forward,” said Charleston Battery co-owner and Executive Chairman Rob Salvatore.
Anhaeuser joined the Charleston Battery as a player in 1994, and switched into a coaching role in 1999. In 2004, he was named head coach of the club and led the Battery to a U.S. Open Cup Final appearance in 2008 as well as two USL Championships in 2010 and 2012.
The club will immediately begin a national search for their next head coach.
