The Revolution are going outside the area for a head coach for the first time since 1999. But the organization has a longtime connection with former US national team goalkeeper Brad Friedel, who is expected to be named the team’s eighth coach this week, according to a league source.
Friedel, 46, who has performed for the US and the Columbus Crew several times in Foxborough, was a roommate of Revolution general manager Michael Burns on the national team,
Friedel succeeds Tom Soehn, who was named interim coach after Jay Heaps was fired in September.
Friedel, who has been coaching the US Under-19 team and working as a commentator on Fox Sports, starred for several European clubs for 20 years, ending his career with Tottenham Hotspur in 2015.
