Riverhounds Hall of Fame inductee Gene Klein

An ever-present figure in the Riverhounds organization from its inception in 1999 and a Pittsburgh soccer icon who also coached Quaker Valley boys soccer program for many years, Gene Klein, joins John Krysinsky ahead of his official induction into the Riverhounds Hall of Fame.
Riverhounds SC will hold a special ceremony to induct former Hounds coach, general manager and television broadcaster Gene Klein to the Riverhounds Hall of Fame at halftime of the Hounds’ home game Saturday, Sept. 10 against Louisville City FC at Highmark Stadium.

Klein will become the sixth member of the team’s Hall of Fame and the first to be inducted after the original class was named in 2019. The ceremony will be the highlight of the team’s Throwback Night promotion, and many of Klein’s former players from the Hounds will be in attendance for the induction.

Scheduled to introduce Klein for induction are Justin Evans, the Hounds Hall of Famer who played under Klein and was his successor as head coach, and Paul Child, the former Pittsburgh Spirit star and Klein’s longtime colleague as a coach and broadcaster.
