Kansas City, KS - Tired of waiting for Jay Heaps to get fired from the New England Revolution, Marc Dos Santos announced that he would be heading back to the North American Soccer League to be the head coach of the San Francisco Deltas.
"It was exhausting," stated Dos Santos in a private interview with The Nutmeg News. "I really thought that the Revolution would have fired Heaps by now, but they just keep hanging on and in the mean time I got this offer. Well, what could I do? I'm not going to spend another year in the USL."
Reportedly Dos Santos took the job with Swope Park Rangers so that he could await the removal of a head coach in Major League Soccer and swoop in, but the reticence of onwers in Major League Soccer to fire their coaches lead to him changing his mind.
"This USL shit is for the birds," stated Dos Santos. "I can't deal with the substitution rules and the crazy number of academy teams, and the rotating first 11 that seems to change based upon what the parent team wants. And despite the year that the Revolution have had, hell despite the year that Columbus or Chicago or Houston have had, none of them have come calling, so I'm back off to the NASL."
The Nutmeg News will have more on this when Dos Santos leaves the Deltas to coach the Chicago Fire in two years.
