Heaps to be named as New England Revolution head coach

New England Revolution have appointed Jay Heaps as their new head coach following the recent departure of Steve Nicol with an official announcement expected later today.

The ex-Liverpool star and the Revs came to a mutual agreement to end his 10-year tenure at the end of the 2011 MLS regular season and they have now replaced him with former defender Heaps.

The 35-year old, who ended his playing career at Gillette Stadium in 2009, has been working at Morgan Stanley's private wealth division and also has served as a commentator for Revolution games.

He becomes the sixth coach in the team's history and takes on a massive task after the Revs finished last in MLS in 2011.
