RSL owner Hansen non-committal on Kreis contract

Real Salt Lake owner Dell Loy Hansen has not quite committed to contract questions regarding head coach Jason Kreis.

The 40-year old, who comes out of contract at the end of the year, is one of the most sought-after coaches in MLS and although Hansen acknowledges that, he remained coy on whether or not the Utah club would offer him a new deal to remain at the Rio Tinto Stadium.

"When you're the most beautiful coach in MLS, you need a lot of attention," Hansen said on KUTV's Talkin' Sports.

"I don't say that in a rude way, but a lot of people would love to have our position and have Jason Kreis as their coach."

Hansen added: "I've got to come up with a diplomatic answer.

"I think we've got a relationship with Jason and our coaches at RSL that gives him the best place to realize what he wants.

"At the same time, he's an extremely talented coach. That doesn't go without notice in other franchises."
