Everyone has an opinion on what should happen next for the New England Revolution, including former player A.J. Soares.
Soares, who played in Foxboro from 2011-2014, took to Twitter on Tuesday to comment on who should serve as the interim coach after the firing of Jay Heaps. While Tommy Soehn has taken the job, Soares nominated Shalrie Joseph, whom he played alongside for two years.
If he's not ready - put someone above him next year and leave him on the first team staff. (2/2)— AJ Soares (@AjSoares) September 19, 2017
The proposal is certainly interesting, especially since the interim position can serve as a trial. Joseph has been a long-time youth coach, even helping to develop Homegrown product Zachary Herivaux. The former MLS All-Star now plays and coaches with FC Boston, who also employs Andy Dorman. Additionally, Joseph serves as a commentator on the Revolution post-game show.
What do you think of Soares’ idea? Would you like to see Joseph coach the Revolution? Is there another spot within the organization that you’d like Joseph to hold? Let us know by leaving a comment below.
