KINGSTON, Jamaica -- German coach Winfried Schaefer has been hired to lead Jamaica through its 2014 World Cup qualifying campaign.
Jamaica is last in the six-team CONCACAF group after four straight losses, including a 2-1 defeat to the first-place United States in Kingston last month.
The Jamaica Football Federation says the 63-year-old Schaefer, who replaces 1998 World Cup player Theodore Whitmore, has "an impressive resume."
