He's not going to be going to MLS this upcoming year. Because that would conflict with the U-23 team more than if he would stay in Akron...
From a time/availability viewpoint, would be easier to get the MNST head coaching position while coaching a college team or a MSL team?? I believe that is his ultimate goal.
We will be at the game on Thursday. Hope the girls can get a big win.
The Revs are a mess and a project and it would be worse for his career than staying at Akron by far. Also, as mentioned, MLS plays through the Summer whereas college does not. How would he balance trying to get a new team to qualify for the Olympics with trying to get a new MLS team to be good again? Way too much work. Also, this hasn't been mentioned yet, but is anyone going to want to buy Porter out of his current contract? Seems like it would be too much. NE's owners have a reputation for not investing the proper money into their club. The Revs are looking at a few others guys already, not worried about this one. Now if in a few years the head coach position at a good club opens up, that could be an issue. Again, I'm not concerned yet. I hope Caleb will take the Bruce Arena route. Arena was the coach at UVA for 17 years before making the leap to the pros. After only three seasons at DC he was tapped to be the head coach of the USMNT. This shows that you don't need a ton of pro experience to be the coach of the national team.
