Ex-Plymouth Argyle and Ipswich Town striker Paul Mariner is expected to take the Toronto FC coaching job.

The independent Ipswich Town website, twtd.co.uk, suggests that Mariner has left his coaching job with League One club Plymouth to take the role at Toronto.

The Canadian club parted ways with Preki Radosavljevic in September, brining in Nick Dasovic as caretaker for the remainder of the 2010 season.

And now it seems that Mariner, who has extensive experience with US soccer, will be the man to step into the role ahead of their 2011 campaign.
