GM Doyle signs on with San Jose Earthquakes

San Jose Earthquakes have announced that general manager John Doyle has re-signed with the club.

48-year old Doyle, who has been a part of the MLS club since its inception in 1995, has penned a long-term contract extension with the Quakes.

"We are proud to sign John to a long-term agreement as the head of our soccer operations," said Earthquakes President Dave Kaval.

"John's dedication to the club is second to nobody. He has been a key leader within the organization as we continue to move forward into a new era of Earthquakes soccer."

The former USA international and ex-Quakes assistant coach has been in the GM role since 2008 and was thrilled to be further committing to the cause.

"First of all, I want to thank the Earthquakes ownership group and Dave Kaval," said Doyle.

"There is a lot of excitement around the club right now, both on the field and with our new stadium getting closer every day. We have an excellent coaching staff and a good group of players, so I am looking forward to a great season."
