Managerial career[edit]

Trois-Rivières Attak[edit]

On January 17, 2007, the Trois-Rivières Attak announced the signing of Dos Santos as manager for the 2007 CSL season. Under the guidance of Dos Santos the club won the Open Canada Cup with a 3–0 victory in the final against the Columbus Clan F.C. In the league, they finished second in the National Division and reached the playoff semi-final, where they eventually lost against the Serbian White Eagles.

During the 2008 CSL season Dos Santos led the Attak to claim the National Division title, the first Division title to be won by the club. For the second year in a row the Attak gained a playoff berth, eventually reaching the finals of the CSL Cup, where once again the Attak were defeated by White Eagles (this time on penalty kicks).

On November 5, 2008, Dos Santos stepped down as head coach of Trois-Rivières, and accepted an assistant coach position with the Montreal Impact under head coach John Limniatis. In May 2009, Limniatis was fired and Dos Santos named as interim head coach.[3] Later that year, Dos Santos was named head coach and remained in that position until his resignation on June 28, 2011.[4]
