Chris Tierney has returned to the New England Revolution to serve as the club’s player recruitment manager.
Tierney, 33, played 11 seasons with his hometown club before retiring in Nov. 2018. He helped the Revs lift the 2008 North American SuperLiga championship and made appearances in the 2014 MLS Cup and 2016 U.S. Open Cup finals.
“It is always a great moment for our club anytime there is an opportunity to bring one of our former players back in a new role. Chris was a great player, teammate and ambassador for the Revolution on and off the field during his time as a player and we’re thrilled to have him join the front office,” Revolution President Brian Bilello said in a team press release.
In his new role, Tierney will focus on scouting, working with sporting director and head coach Bruce Arena, as well as technical director Curt Onalfo.
It’s positive to see the Revs bring in Tierney, who was a fan favorite while playing in Foxboro. The club made a similar move on Jun. 4, 2018 when they hired Charlie Davies as their first-ever club ambassador.
