Heaps Out as Head Coach

Heaps Out as Head Coach”

The move comes days after a disastrous two-game road swing that included a 7-0 defeat at Atlanta United, the worst in club history.

Robert and Jonathan Kraft have fired the head coach of the New England Revolution.

The Revolution return to action on Saturday to take on MLS leader Toronto FC.

The Revs are now 10-14-5 and in eighth place in the Eastern Conference despite boasting a team with numerous attacking options, including Juan Agudelo, Kei Kamara and Lee Nguyen. Burns has been the team's general manager for the past six seasons - he was named to the position at the same time Heaps was hired as head coach - and was the vice president for player personnel for four seasons prior to that.

"Jay has done a great deal for the club over the years and had considerable achievements".

Jay Heaps spent 15 years with the Major League Soccer team as a player and coach. He also led the Revs to the MLS Cup Final in 2014 where they lost to the LA Galaxy.

The sources could not confirm whether assistant coach Tom Soehn would step into an interim role to guide the team for the remainder of the season. "We will always be grateful for his efforts in bringing us back to both an MLS Cup final and a U.S. Open Cup Final and wish nothing but the best for him moving forward".

Heaps, who took over as head coach of the Revolution in 2011 before leading the franchise to the MLS Cup final three years later, has overseen a slump in fortunes this season. Soehn has served as an MLS head coach before, with D.C. United and the Vancouver Whitecaps.
