Burns

Brian Bilello has been promoted to president of the New England Revolution soccer team and Michael Burns is the new general manager, the team announced today.

Bilello was the team's chief operating officer, but will now "oversee all aspects of the Revolution organization," according to a team press release.

Burns was vice president of player personnel the last four seasons, but will now "lead all aspects of the club's soccer operations, which now includes the coaching staff and player acquisitions."

“Major League Soccer has evolved significantly in the last few years and while we felt we had a structure in place that had worked well earlier and led us to success, the last two years did not live up to our expectations,” team owner Robert Kraft said in a press release. “With this new executive structure, we will be better positioned to compete for championships on the field while we continue to focus on growing our business and building a soccer-specific venue in the Commonwealth.”
