RSL Press Conference

From the press conference:
  • Ellinger to stay on as a technical director.
  • RSL will be running an national and international search for a new general manager.
  • ‘Jason Kries reminds me of Jeff Van Gundy. His will to win qualifies him to be the head coach of Real Salt Lake. He will become on of the great coaches in MLS history.’ (Dave Checketts)
  • This will be a multi-year deal, not just an interim thing.
  • ‘To those of you who don’t think I can succeed, get in line. And thank you, because you’re just what I need someone to prove wrong.’ (Jason Kreis)
  • ‘Fortune Favors the Brave’—Jason Kreis’ recurring theme
What didn’t happen in the press conference:
  • There were rumours swirling that this was not the only news, but that seems not to have been the case. Is there more to come?
