Real Salt Lake coach Jason Kreis has signed a new two-year contract. "First and most importantly, I am extremely grateful to Dave Checketts and the rest of the ownership group, Bill Manning and Garth Lagerwey for this gesture of faith. It is a reflection on the team-oriented approach that the entire technical staff has embraced since day one," Kreis said.
"This also would not be possible without the dedication, hard work and success of the players on the field. We have turned things around to the point where the great people of Utah believe, as I do, that 'Fortune Favors the Bold.' Everyone involved in establishing the expectations of success for our team continues to work towards earning championships, and I do not take that responsibility lightly."
RSL owner and SCP Worldwide Chairman Dave Checketts said: "Jason continues to fit the profile of every great leader I have worked with throughout my career.
"He is a hard-working, dedicated over-achiever who refuses to accept anything less than maximum effort from everyone around him. And while we have made great strides thus far under his leadership, I know we are bound for unprecedented heights, and I know that Jason is the right person to help guide our team's ascent."
