Since Hernan Medford and his coaching staff were announced by the Federación Costarricense de Fútbol as the new coaches for the Costa Rica national football team, Jeaustin Campos was named by Saprissa as their new head coach, and Row was appointed as assistant coach.[5] He was dismissed by Saprissa in September 2014, alongside manager Rónald González.[6]
