Former Revolution defender John “Jay” Heaps has been named the sixth head coach in the team’s history, according to multiple sources. Heaps, 35, replaces Steve Nicol, whose contract was not renewed after the Revolution finished tied for last place in the MLS overall standings with a 5-16-13 record.
The Revolution are expected to make an announcement Tuesday and have scheduled a press conference for Wednesday.
Heaps retired in 2009, following a 10-year MLS career in which he set a Revolution record for games played in all competitions (294) and has been working as a color commentator on the team's television broadcasts.
