Houston Dynamo's Bruin excited to have ex-Burnley, Bolton boss Coyle watching closely

Will Bruin admits he feels a sense of freshness at the Houston Dynamo following their recent appointment of Owen Coyle as head coach.

The 25-year old forward has spent his MLS career-to-date playing under Dom Kinnear but in the wake of the former boss' move to San Jose Earthquakes, and subsequent capture of Coyle, Bruin is feeling revitalized ahead of the 2015 MLS season.

"Sometimes when you have the same people watching you the whole time, they know your strengths and weaknesses. It comes to a point where it's a broken record and they stop telling you," Bruin told MLSsoccer.com of the former Burnley, Bolton and Wigan Athletic boss who spent time at Dundee United, Motherwell, Bolton and Falkirk as a player.

"It's always good to get new eyes on you, because everybody sees it different.

"Owen being a striker, he's going to see a lot of things. That's going to complement me big time."

Bruin, who has scored over 40 MLS goals during his Dynamo career, is expected to be challenged by last season's leading scorer Giles Barnes and the expected signing of ex-Chivas USA star Cubo Torres for a starting spot but it appears as though he has a new-found confidence under Coyle.
