Jason Kreis, Out!

He resigned as gaffer of RSL and is the new boss for NYC FC. I think the move makes sense for him. I think that this move is in anticipation of his next career move which will either be the first American manager in the EPL or the manager of the USMNT after 2018.

"Jason Kreis’ tenure at Real Salt Lake officially ended on Tuesday night, when he invited each of his players to his home for dinner and frank conversation about the future.

Kreis, the 40-year-old rising star of the Major League Soccer coaching ranks who lifted RSL from the expansion doldrums to a league power, has officially stepped down from his position with RSL, and will accept the head coaching position at New York City FC, the 2015 MLS expansion franchise backed by EPL powerhouse Manchester City.

Flanked by the players he helped guide to the MLS Cup final last Saturday, Kreis informed the team of his decision, and is now expected to make his first public comments about the move to realsaltlake.com on Wednesday.

"I'd like to thank Jason for a remarkably successful run during his nine years with Real Salt Lake as both a player and as a head coach," RSL owner Dell Loy Hansen said in a statement. "Jason obviously leaves the Utah soccer scene significantly better than he found it, building the competitive foundation of one of Major League Soccer's elite organizations."

According to New York City FC, Kreis will assume the role formally in January and will travel to England to spend time with Manchester City, including head coach Manuel Pellegrini and the club's technical staff to observe "the club’s approach to coaching, training, and player development, with the goal of applying similar approaches to New York City FC."

Apparently the favorites to replace him are Jeff Cassar, Robin Fraser and our old friend Eric Wynalda.

Alright guys, I don't believe I have to say this but, just in case, please do not submit anything racist, homophobic, sexist or otherwise not appropriate for even the younger Timbers fans.
