Several teams are already in full roster swing with contract options, rumors, and even signings emerging.
Sounders broadcast analyst and Seattle University head coach Peter Fewing was named the 2015 NSCAA West Regional Coach of the Year after leading the Redhawks to the NCAA DI Sweet Sixteen for the first time in school history.
Russell Wilson joins the Sonics Arena group and Frank Lampard is done in MLS.
