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.”

To our readers,
We've added a translation feature to the Corner Kicks blog to assist readers who may be more comfortable reading another language.
Google Translate is not perfect -- we're aware of that -- but it is quite good at getting the main points of the story across. We've successfully used it on The Big Picture, Boston.com's extremely popular world photography site. I'd be eager to hear your feedback on its use in Corner Kicks, in whatever language.
