The 38-year old keeper called time on his playing days with New England Revolution on Wednesday before being snapped up by his former club to join their coaching staff.

Reis started his MLS career with LA back in 1998 before moving to the Revs in 2003 where he holds a number of records including games played in goal (254), minutes played in goal and wins for the club.

"We are pleased to have Matt join our staff and coach the club's goalkeepers," said LA Galaxy general manager and head coach Bruce Arena.

"Matt's experience as a player and knowledge of MLS will serve him well in his new role."

During his career, the 2013 MLS WORKS Humanitarian of the Year won the 2000 CONCACAF Champions League, the 2002 MLS Cup, two Supporters’ Shields in LA (1998, 2002) and the 2001 US Open Cup with the Galaxy. In New England, he helped the Revs clinch the 2007 US Open Cup.
