Outgoing DC United coach Tom Soehn has been linked with a role at expansion outfit Philadelphia Union.

Soehn was assistant manager at DC to the Union's inaugural coach, Piotr Nowak, and it has been reported that he may link up with his former boss at Philadelphia.

Soehn opted out of being re-signed by DC after a tough season at the helm and may move on to help guide MLS' newest franchise in their first season in the competition.

Nowak and Soehn worked together to deliver DC United their fourth MLS Cup in 2004.
