Kreis is one of the rising stars in the Major League Soccer coaching ranks, and is one of the few that has managed to build a team that combines the best of the South American and USA styles of play.

The deal looked all but done just days ago, but sources with knowledge of the New York Red Bulls coaching search tell SBI that Claudio Reyna has turned down the opportunity to be the team's lead assistant coach.

Reyna was pegged as the frontrunner earlier this month to be the assistant for Paulo Sousa, who has been tipped to take over as Red Bulls head coach, but Reyna has apparently made the final decision to pass on the job offer.

The New York Red Bulls are the final team in MLS with a coaching vacancy to fill this off-season, but sources tell SBI they have settled on the top two men in their staff and it is two coaches recently linked to the club.

The Red Bulls will name Paulo Sousa head coach as early as this week, sources confirmed to SBI on Monday.

Seeing Earnie Stewart and Claudio Reyna in the crowd Monday brought back some World Cup memories

If you scanned the crowd at Monday's Generation adidas Cup qualifier between the Philadelphia Union and New York City FC, you likely would have noticed a couple of U.S. World Cup legends.

They work for different teams now - Earnie Stewart as the Union's Sporting Director and Claudio Reyna as New York City FC's Director of Football Operations - but seeing them standing next to each other was, for me at least, the soccer equivalent of watching Stranger Things on Netflix.
