After reports broke earlier this week that Friedel was set for the head coaching gig, the Revs confirmed the appointment of former U.

Change was needed for the New England Revolution. It was not hard to see. Even putting aside the abysmal and inexcusable results of the past week, the team had, at best, stagnated or, at worst, fallen further and further behind the pack that is consistently competing in MLS.

The process of change began on Tuesday when the club announced the firing of Jay Heaps, and it is one of several needed if the Revs want to rediscover themselves in the long-term.

The New England Revolution have a good squad. In fact, they have a squad that shouldn't be missing the playoffs two years in a row. Adding three new central defenders in Claude Dielna, Benjamin Angoua, and Antonio Delamea, along with striker Krisztian Nemeth were good pieces, but the Revolution still have one major void left to be filled.
